neurofibromatosis cafe

A place to talk about NF, have fun and share.

Clay Walker at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, 3/14/08

2334667510_e3fa1648da_b.jpgWow! 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.2334669090_750680bb56_b.jpg

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!

  3. It was a great night! Brian, we were invited to the Verizon Suite by my friend, Laurie Selzer, who is an account executive for a company called MNI, Media Networks Inc. She has been a huge supporter of Reggie and neurofibromatosis since the Carolyn Farb days of the early 90’s. She is currently helping us with something HUGE that I can’t reveal right now. How’s that for a tease?
