Old Cowboys Never Die – They Just Get De-rangedPosted: July 7, 2011 | |
We were watching a piece about rodeo’s on a morning new program this week. The featured rodeo was held in Montana and it was more akin to mud wrestling since the event was held in a downpour. Mom’s comments were peppered with “Yuk,” “Oh my gosh, what a mess,” “Good Grief,” and various combinations, including “Good grief, what a mess,” Oh my gosh, what a yukky mess,” “Oh good gosh grief” and so on.
During what was obviously a carnage of mud, slime and filthy cowboys, she commented “You know, I think when Arizona started out they had cowboys here.”
“I know, but I think there were quite a few of them here.”
“Yes, I do, at least before all the easterners moved in.”
