Kind of girlie stuff

For those of you from other parts of the country and world -- that is a Navajo Taco. That one is fry bread with beans, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Normally they also contain ground beef and red chili rather than green, but I prefer no meat with green. Fry bread is a wonderful thing. Luckily it is not something you find everywhere, not even in NM. Aside from the tacos it is yummy with just honey. If you have ever had a sopapilla, it is like that only not as puffed and much bigger.

Anyhow, we spent part of the day at the Wild West Antique Show, at the fairgrounds. That is kind of a girly thing, but plenty of men like antiquing -- including mine.

Normally I like to buy trade beads at this annual show, but since I haven't beaded in ages -- I bought nothing other than food. Oh, I still would have bought beads if I found any really unique trade beads, but I didn't. A couple years back I bought a strand of rattlesnake rattles and I still need to make those into something because they are awesome!

Britton talked me into sitting on a bull to have a photo taken. Actually, I am glad he talked me into it because it was fun and I can now say that I have rode a bull. :-)

Sounds like a lot of fun Lesley; I don't know if I would have wanted to go on that bull, his horns are scary looking!

I love fry bread, and "Indian tacos" as they're usually called here. When I worked for the Indian Education Program I was lucky enough to get to eat those all the time. . .

I adore fry bread! Luckily it is normally something you only find at special events or on the rez because I am sure anything called fry bread can't be healthy. They are normally called Navajo tacos here, but it depends where you buy them, sometimes they are just Indian tacos. I think they were just called Indian tacos at the show yesterday. Maybe they are only allowed to be called Navajo tacos if they are being made by an actual Navajo. :-)

You should have seen me trying to get off the bull -- that was the funny part because I couldn't quite figure out how to do it.
