Wow! Tonight I was invited to the Rodeo once again. It was a more then Terrific night. The music was the best I’ve heard so far. Clay Walker sang all of my favorite songs and encouraged everyone to join in. Pretty cool. It was cool to see him ride a horse to the stage. A real Texan.
A big thank you to Laurie Selzer, from MNI (Media Networks Inc) for allowing me to join them in the Verizon West VIP suite. The food was terrific. I wish I knew everyones name I would love to say thank you for the wonderful treatment.
Here are a bunch of photos I took tonight. I hope to add everyone’s names to these when Lou gets them from Laurie!
Tonight was another great night at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!
I started out with the live stock show and all of the other fun things. Oh, my God! Did I enjoy the FOOD. Everything was to die for. Deep fried Oreos, steak burgers, foot-long sausage sandwiches, giant cinnamon rolls with lots of icing. But don’t take my word for it, check out the photos for yourself.
I went to the Rodeo to see Martina McBride. She was great and the music was terrific! She really sang her heart out. She sang all of her best songs and the crowd loved it. Of course, so did I. Martina loves Houston and she looks forward to her show here every year.
I know why she loves Houston. I feel it every time I go out. So many people here have been so kind to me. I’m thankful to be in a great city like Houston. It made me feel so good when people I never met came up to be today and spoke kind words to me. You will see them in my photos. People like that are heroes to me!
Cowboy Up, America! When a cowboy’s in a pinch, he just tightens up the cinch, spurs his horse and rides right through it, cause that’s the way the Duke would do it. He’d Cowboy Up.
This year it’s going to be another terrific year for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Just as I did last year, I will be there enjoying all activities for the 2008 show.
This year I plan to see more of the livestock show then I did last year. As for music, there are several performers I want to see this year. There are two I have in mind now, that I want to see Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw I will see more then one, I hope. All that to look forward too, and I haven’t even started on the great food.
How many of you are planning to go the the Rodeo, and who will you see? It would be a great idea if any of you go, to take pictures and send me a photo and I will make a section for our photos for this year on the blog and Flickr.
Last night, Lou and I went to the Verizon Theater to watch our favorite sport, Houston Roller Derby, and I gotta tell you, it was incredible!!! We saw some of the most intense skating we have ever seen. All the skaters were pumped up and ready to leave it all out on the track.
Mistilla the Killa was a woman possessed!!! In the second half near the end when the score was almost tied, she broke the game wide open with an incredible jam that put the Bosses away for good. Dementia was the last jammer of the evening and sewed up the win for the Sirens with a perfect jam!!!
If you haven’t experienced Houston Roller Derby yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. Last night was the last match for this season so you’ll probably need to wait till next year when the league starts again. I know I can’t wait!!!
HOUSTON ROLLER DERBY RULES!!!! PHOTOS
Last night’s Houston Roller Derby action was the best I have ever seen. Lou and I were close to the action on the floor and almost had a couple ladies land in our lap. Maybe we’ll be luckier next time!
All of the teams did a terrific job. I had no idea how much talent and physical strength you need to be a skater until we sat up close. You can see all the action that’s going on, not just what the jammer is doing.
I saw Beverly Kills throw a block on one skater that I felt this morning!
What I really like about Houston Roller Derby is that the skaters will come up to you and talk to you and thank you for coming! The famous skaters Dementia, Mistilla the killa and Jekyl & Heidi (they’re all famous in my head) were very nice to me and took lots of photos with me. The roller derby ladies make me feel like they are my fan, just as much as I am a fan to them. If you want to feel like you have a fan, all you have to do is go to one game. You will be hooked. Believe me you will enjoy the game. I always enjoy myself.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Colonel is crazy!!!
Stay tuned for photos to be posted at your favorite Flickr site, or Reggie’s!
I missed you guys…in a perverse sort of way!
I received a wonderful letter from my friend from years back. At the time I met Mike Moncrief, he was Senator Mike Moncrief for the State of Texas. And now he is Mayor Mike Moncrief of Fort Worth. He and his wife Rosie have been very supportive in everything I have been involved in. You will see that in the photos in my picture section on Flickr. Mike and Rosie also wear one of my JUST ASK t-shirts. I’m honored to call them my friends!
Here is the email that he sent me today:
“Hey Reggie, I just visited your website and i was most impressed. The ongoing
challenge of raising awareness of NF and search for a cure is made easier by your efforts. By the way, I wear my Tshirt every chance I get and have had numerous folk come up to me and ask about it. Keep up the great work and you are more than welcome to post this email on your blog.
Minerva Terrill, a board member of the Texas NF Foundation, presented a check for $90,000 to the hospital for NF research. This is something all of us who are affected with NF can be very excited about.
Great researchers and clinicians are out there looking for a cure and there are great people like Minerva and Cindy Hahn who are doing what they can to raise the funds needed to fund that research. We have a lot to look forward to. Stay tuned! I know more good news is ahead.
People are beginning to JUST ASK! This is GREAT! Friday night my family and I went to one of our favorite restaurants. Taste Of Texas.
We had the best time I can remember. It was 15 of us. Sisters, nieces, nephews, brother sister in-law,and Mom. Of course ME ME ME! We all sported out JUST ASK t-shirts. We felt like stars. We got a lot of smiles and people commenting on our t-shirts. Lots of you ASKED. I thank all of you that wanted to know. It was a wonderful family night for us. Thanks to the Staff of The Taste Of Texas. You did a TREMENDOUS job as always!

And if you have tips that would be terrific. I know I can use all the tips I can get. Looking forward to your comments. My favorite cake to bake is German Chocolate Cake. And Cobbler. Peach and Berry cobbler. You will get to see photos of that soon. I would love to love to see your photots.
All I can say is wow! It was TERRIFIC!!
The men and women at Station 59 really helped my family out during my brother Ronnie’s illness and I am so appreciative of the help and compassion they provided!
Just know that you are never alone when you have incredible people like these guys just a phone call away!!!
God bless you, all of you!!!
GREG GORMAN – World famous photographer, great supporter of Reggie Bibbs and one hell of a nice guy!!!
Meet my friend Greg Gorman. I have been friends with Greg for 20 years. I met Greg through Carolyn Farb when Greg came to do a special exhibition in Galveston.
Greg is a world famous photographer who shoots a lot of celebrities like John Waters, Alfred Hitchcock, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrisson, Janis Joplin, Robert De Niro, Johhny Depp, Beyonce, Sharon Stone, David Bowie, Sophia Loren, Marlon Brando and Reggie Bibbs.
Houstonians and anyone who has visit our city. I’am looking for great places for photographing. If you know of areas around Houston, post them. I know we have many areas that would be terrific to photograph. I have in mind are places for a picnic, parks and areas that look nice in the spring. Please post.
These photos of me were shot by my friend, Kevin Lynch. I met him when he worked for Greg Gorman. He works for him self now. I stayed at his house in Malibu. We went to Malibu and took the photos there. It was after they had that big fire years ago.
Today I went to Cavender’s www.cavenders.com to buy Western gear. I always shop at the S. loop store # 23. I love that particular store. I bought a nice looking belt. Want to be ready just in case I get to go to the Rodeo, or I have the opportunity to meet ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. If not, I will have the western clothing for “Go Western” day at our Church Sunday.
