~Unexpected Treasure~

Cleburne, Texas:  As long as I live, I don't think I will have heard of even half of all the towns in Texas.  Honestly, when I was planning a trip to Cleburne to attend a rabbit show, I didn't expect much.  Perhaps because Cleburne doesn't exactly sound like a happening kind of place.  But it was the first rabbit show of the season, so I was anxious to get there.  Anyway, I packed a lot of books and magazines and hoped for the best.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this little town.  There was more to it than I thought there would be and I LOVED the hotel I stayed at.  While the shopping left a lot to be desired (no boutiques), I did love the fully stocked Tractor Supply (it's the little things, right?).  Beautiful murals popped up in unexpected places on well preserved old buildings.  And as a fan of live theater, the Plaza Theatre Company on Main was just perfect.  I peeked in at the set and immediately imagined myself getting swept away to "Treasure Island."  I didn't fit it in this time, preferring to lounge at the hotel, but the theater will be a must see on my next trip.  Yes, I am looking forward to my next visit to Cleburne.  Who knew?

"Judge", my first show bunny!

After attending rabbit shows for several months, I had the opportunity to get my first show bunny in Cleburne, Texas this past weekend.  "Judge" is a Chestnut Agouti Holland Lop buck.  He's a little over a year old.
