Does the barn look a little different than in the last pic I posted? :-)

I took this one at our neighbor's house where we sled.

Titus is sure milkin' it! :-)

What do you call this?

Doesn't look like they got very far! :-)

Doesn't this look like fun?

My "other" little girl. :-)

Ranchman's Widow

She's got one son a doctor,
And a daughter teachin' Latin.
Her youngest, he's a lawyer,
And she thinks a heap of that 'un.
But one's a cow ranch foreman,
And it makes her kinder glad,
For the way he sets the saddle
Just reminds her of his dad.

She's proud to be the mother
Of a man who tends the sick,
And of a brainy daughter,
And a lawyer, keen and quick;
But when her old heart hankers
For the old days once again,
She packs and makes a visit
To the range of ridin' men.

And although he ain't ambitious
For a big high-toned success,
Her cowboy son arouses
Just a heap more tenderness.
Than all the other trio,
And her heart feels young and glad
Just to see him set a saddle

Like his old cowpuncher dad.

Code Of The Cow Country

It don't take such a lot of laws
To keep the rangeland straight,
Nor books to write 'em in, because
There's only six or eight.
The first one is the welcome sign—
True brand of western hearts:
"My camp is yours an' yours is mine,"
In all cow country parts.

Treat with respect all womankind,
Same as you would your sister.
Take care of neighbors' strays you find,
And don't call cowboys "mister."
Shut pasture gates when passin' through;
An' takin' all in all,
Be just as rough as pleases you,
But never mean nor small.

Talk straight, shoot straight, and never break
Your word to man nor boss.
Plumb always kill a rattlesnake.
Don't ride a sorebacked hoss.
It don't take law nor pedigree
To live the best you can!
These few is all it takes to be
A cowboy—and a man!

Random Pictures

I know these are old, but I was enjoying looking at SUMMERTIME pictures! :-)

This little guy was a lot of fun!

I'm not sure exactly where this came from, but I thought it was cute.

This is my baby and her little girl! :-)

Notice that all four of her feet are off the ground - it's so cool riding when they're in a lope like that! Nice and smooth!
