      Being from Comanche, we always enjoyed going to the “Dublin Rodeo”. Now, I am learning more about it, and realizing the importance of the Rodeo to Dublin. My husband Darrell and I were at the Dublin Rodeo when Gene Autry made his final appearance at the Rodeo. I remember that he rode on a beautiful horse around and around the arena, waving at the fans in the stands. And, one time, there was a bull that tried to sit up in the stands with the spectators. And, I also remember how wonder the grand entry always was. Wonderful memories.
