Why I attend the Austin Threshermen's Reunion and Stampede

My father resides there. His love of history. His love of animals. His people. His ability to stook faster than anyone else. His shy head-tilted smile.

And now

My daughter resides there. Her love of activity. Her love of cotton candy. Her people. Her ability to charm anyone she meets. Her bright-eyed smile.

And maybe in some small way I can join these two worlds that have never actually touched each other.
