I think about cowboys every now and then, when I see a horse and a saddle or hear a pistol or see a boy of crayons . .

So I was surprised and not surprised to get this link (above) today in an email from a friend who moved out west. He's in a cowboy group, pictured somewhere at the link. I'm so glad that Ted is doing this! We'd never agree on who to vote for, but we get along just great, and I'm glad he likes playing cowboy, It's certainly a long time fantasy life of mine. But I have to email him and ask all the rest of the cowboy dream questions: do you sleep out under the stars, do you sing to the dogies, do you even ride horses????? I think that politics aside, we as being of different genders, have a differnt idea of cowboys.

Coming up: Wilson Wakes Up!

Also, Horse Encounters in Fairview

Clearly, there's more to find out. Until then, I have crayons and colored pencils, but I don't have the right coloring book. Ahhhl I DO have a Dover Indians of North American coloring book. Lemme go check it out. Get yourself something to drink and make yourself comfortable. I'll be back.

I am a big fan of cowboy music, ever since visiting my brother in Colorado, and attending a touristy cowboy music show. I think SASS is the best acronym I've ever seen.
