where the buffalo roam...

This week I have been mostly dreaming about being a cowboy....
Everyday routines are skipped or stumbled through, dinners cooked, uniforms washed, lunches packed, petrol tanks filled and then KER read a book or find a picture and the monster day dreams set in...
You too??
This weeks catalyst was a side bar in the brilliant
Gene Autry's Cowboy Code
1. The Cowboy must never shoot first, hit a smaller man, or take unfair advantage.
2. He must never go back on his word, or a trust confided in him.
3. He must always tell the truth.
4. He must be gentle with children, the elderly and animals.
5. He must not advocate or possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas.
6. He must help people in distress.
7. He must be a good worker.
8. He must keep himself clean in thought, speech, action and personal habits.
9. He must respect women, parents and his nation's laws.
10. The Cowboy is a patriot.

Just one more rule that I'd love to adhere to... the Cowboy or Girl must have some rockin', yeehaa boots!

If I had a time machine the wild, wild West is definitely somewhere I'd be heading for a least until dinnertime. I'm not sure my delicate constitution could cope with all those baked beans!
thank you flickr and google images.


  1. hello lovely Jus!
    Your comment about cleaning made me laugh out loud - you have to take top prize for funniest commentator, you know!!
    As for the cowboy/girl dreams - oh yes, totally agree with you. I dream very often of a perfect pair of red cowboy boots which I'd wear with floral dresses and a denim jacket for a Stevie Nicks kind of homage.
    And how amazing must it be to time travel to the wild west- yeeehaaaa! Bare back horse riding (meaning without a saddle, as opposed to being bare on a horse - lady godiva was not in my thoughts!!!)
    Ah such dreams.....
    Wishing you many happy daydream moments,

  2. Me too, me too and I'll have some of those boots too.

    Meanwhile back at the ranch ...Ramsey Street Ranch - Madge has friends in our Village ! I've heard she doesn't like being accosted in the street !
    If we go crocodile hunting - will we be allowed in the pub after - or sent to the ladies bar ? I mean if we've wressled crocs - surely we can handle a few Aussie guys ? !
