Cowboy Strong

What is it about us that makes us love a cowboy?  Maybe it’s because we think the truth is important, and pretention a waste of energy.  There is something right about the man who gets up in the morning knowing that his day will be full and his exhaustion at the end of it complete, that the people he cares about are counting on him to work the land and move the cattle despite the elements.  We like that he doesn’t try to impress us with his money or his education, because our opinion doesn’t really matter to him.  His goal is to look himself in the mirror every evening and know that he left everything he had on the range, and tomorrow he will get up and do it again, because it is just what he does.  Not to impress anyone, but because he wants to do it.  He cares about the land and the livestock and treating both of them with respect.  And when the sky grows dark and the ranch rests quietly he’ll sleep in his bed, knowing he did it right for another day, and every callous was worth it.

Kick Up Your Heels

So do you have your boots for the Rodeo yet?  You know it’s this Saturday.  Seriously girls!  Get your feet in gear and get over to Pine Country Feed, where there are boots just right for your cowgirl feet.  And while you’re at it, grab a hat for your adorable cowgirl head.  Seriously!

On the Ranch

From 1959 to 1973 America turned for their entertainment needs to a show about a widower with three grown sons, all living together on a ranch that was rumored to have taken up most of Nevada.  It was Bonanza and for fourteen seasons Ben, Adam, Hoss and Little Joe Cartwright made us believe that integrity and family values were what built the west.   There was some humor, quite a bit of drama, a little romance, and an abundance of diplomacy that every week seemed to remind us that family comes first and standing for justice is a full time job.  Four men living together in a huge, luxurious ranch house, being looked after by a Chinese cook named Hop Sing was a perfectly logical scenario, because there was only one thing that mattered in the end, and that was the family unit.  After being held hostage by stage robbers, or stampeded by a runaway herd of cattle, or wooed by designing women, the boys and their pa always found that center of gravity that brought them home, that made us all sigh and look forward to the next episode.  The Cartwrights, though not typical, were the perfect because they believed in what they were – a family.

Do something today to celebrate the fresh new world just outside your window.  Dig something into the dirt besides the heel of your boot and start a revolution of color and expansive thinking.  Invest yourself in the sheer frivolity of flowers.  Nothing for eating, no profit involved, doesn’t count as self improvement, just roots plunked into the soil and splashes of bright, cultivated joy coming out on top.  Put in your favorites without a lot of thinking, and absolutely no diagrams, then add some water, and direct a bit of sun their way and wink at their soft brilliant faces whenever you pass by and see what happens.  The miracle of seeds in the ground being coaxed to their beautiful splendor can do more to lift your spirits than any number of books about “being your best you”, and the fabulous part is that they aren’t really good for anything but enjoyment.  Simple beauty and the wonder of floral extravagance – a garden of delights.
