Hit and Miss

Friends.. i apologize, for the hit and miss nature of this blog. I feel like i lose valuable connections just from missing a post or two. The blog is like the sun peeking through the clouds every once in a while. And its been cloudy around here!
I hope you do understand! I have so much I'd like to share with everyone. Time and Space - my fickle friends!
Oh, and the computer that continues to amaze and frustrate me with its unnatural loooooong life.

Till soon,

Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys...

willie nelson and waylon jennings

the sad cowboy story

what is my story?
i aim to find the answer
i live this old life
out west
where new brave thinkers
carve out a living
from dirt and promise
driven by tintypes
of mothers long dead
and a heart full of memories
of a life our bones know
for time eternal
i birth the images
one by one
and tell the story
the story of me
and catch the tail fin
of the old west.

Fair Fair and the Great Train Wreck's a Coming

roscoe the brave has been trying out his duds for weeks now

getting in the spirit of the old west
watchin old men on tractors doing donuts
eating dirt for lunch and dinner
getting chased around a parking lot by a boy and his chicken

watching the kids scrub, trim, clip and shine their stock

and putting on their best for show

anticipating the full stands tomorrow
rumored guests include past presidents and Ralph Lauren etc....
while the big sister puts the finishing touches on her retro cowgirl shirt
in preparation for grand entrance
as the Queen.

Small town rodeo and fair. It's an American tradition.
I feel lucky to dip a toe or two in it.

the train wreck?
 oh, the very next day after is dramatic finish to the summer
is the first day of school.
