I don’t know about you guys, but I could use a laugh. And I sure did laugh when my colleague, Dwayne Yancey, showed me this photo he took outside the Texas Tavern in downtown Roanoke about midnight on Friday.
Apparently, someone rode their horse downtown for the evening and stopped at the TT for a bite to eat. As long as the TT has been open, maybe this isn’t the first time someone tied up a horse out front. I’ve heard a few other co-workers say they think they’ve seen this horse downtown before.
I hate to steal Dan Casey’s “caption this” contest idea, but this picture sure does provide a lot of opportunity for goofy jokes. So whoever leaves the funniest comment (in my opinion) on this blog entry wins a copy of “Big Ranch, Big City Cookbook” by Louis Lambert.
I apologize in advance to my friends at the Texas Tavern, which is sure to be the butt of some of these jokes. Paybacks to me will probably come in the form of snarky comments about The Roanoke Times, since this horse is tied up right next to one of our newspaper boxes.
