One day a young boy walked up to his mother and said "Mom when I grow up I'm gonna be a cowboy" to which his mother replyed "Don't be foolish son. You can't do both" :wink: :D

When sw and I were dating, we would go to ID to visit his folks periodically. EVERY TIME I'd greet his dad, he would be singing "Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys". He sang it EVERY TIME :eek:

Perhaps this will shed a little light on that question for you:

What is a cowboy?

Between the security of childhood and the insecurity of a second childhood, we find that fascinating group of humanity called........
"COWBOYS."

They come in assorted hat sizes, weights and stages of sobriety.
They can be found in cities, towns, the wilderness, bars, jails,
on the road, and always in debt.

A cowboy is laziness with a deck of cards, bravery with spurs, energy on a dance floor, a legend of the "old west" with a copy of playboy, and seldom without a case of beer or a fifth of whiskey. He has the get-up-and-go of a turtle, the slyness of a fox, the brains of a dreamer, the stories of a sea captain, the sincerity of a liar, the aspirations of a "casanova", and when he wants something, it's usually connected with horses or women.

Some of his likes are: Women, beer, whiskey, broncs, rodeo dances, more women, chewing tobacco, and the smell of saddle leather.

His dislikes are: answering letters, his boss, officers of the law, and being told to take his hat off.

No one else can cram into one pocket a little black book, a photo of his best gal, a package of red man, and what is left of last week's pay. He likes to spend some of his money on girls, some on poker, a lot on beer, some on shooting pool, and the rest on foolishness...

A cowboy is a majestic creature. You can scratch him out of your phone book, but not out of your heart. You may want to give up on that bleary-eyed, good-for-nothing long way from home lover boy, but all your dreams become insignificant when a "cowboy" knocks at your door, looks at you with those blood-shot eyes and says...

"HI BABE!"

Hopefully now you understand a bit more about cowboys, zephyrus. :wink:

Hey Zeph, don't believe all of what you read here. :shock:

This description, while cute, doesn't even begin to tell the true tale of who and/or what a cowboy is. Cowboys are like most folks, good, bad, and indifferent.

There are still real, working, ranch cowboys out there, you just can't see them from the road. :wink:
