Did you know George and Barbara Bush attended the Houston rodeo?

My sisters & I met President Bush once at the Houston Rodeo as he started the calf scramble alongside my dad. My sister had on matching silver sequined black shirts. He was so tickled by them. Will never forget the standing ovations he & Mrs. Bush received every year they came. pic.twitter.com/OHBISC9LZt
