She’s the oldest one in the state, yet somehow her timeless nature makes us feel young at heart. Whether 4 years old or 85, we brave the heat, dust and waning days of summer — the endless cycle toward school, football, volleyball and approaching fall — in our futile efforts to court this grand old dame. We wine and dine her along the food court row. Applaud her performance from the grandstands or the hay bales of festival seating. Cheer her on while cowboys test their skills in the tilled dirt of the rodeo arena.
