Americana - Cattle Sale
Great when within the confines of "the Job" I can go to the Cattle Auction and watch American at work. The cattle Auction is a sale but much more than just a sale.
Mom and Pop come to watch the calves sell once a year. The cattle buyer is there every week and has a "motion" conversation with the Auctioneer and the kid watches in awe as the "fast talk" continues and the cattle move through at a fast pace.
Americana at work but fleeting. Fewer every year and the one I attended today is probably to pass in the next two years to the progress of a shopping mall.
