Paula Deen did what amounted to a stand-up routine and the sold-out crowd roared as her dog, Lulu performed tricks… she introduced Michael and asked the crowd where she could find a bull penis for a chew toy for Lulu.  She figured that a Texas crowd had ready access to them.
 
 
There are nearly 200 exhibitors and
vendors to stroll through.
