Funny How That Worked Out..........

When I was a little girl I wanted nothing more than to marry a cowboy (I was always partial to bulldoggers cuz they were big guys) and live on a real ranch in Montana.  I had a two posters of half nekkid cowboys on my bedroom wall. (Who didn't though right?)

Pay no mind to the little cowgirl.  That is a little girl we babysat for.  She called my folks mom and dad and her folks by their first names, and I had to do my best to corrupt her!
I used to write the Montana tourism folks and they would send me packets of information on life in Montana.  I used to have dreams about it, one dream in particular that I was living on a ranch in Montana with my cowboy husband and I called my mom because I needed to know how to roast a ham.

Well I happened to fall in love with a butcher (he was irresistible in that white apron that framed his adorable little booty), who became a Schwans man, who became a trash man, who climbed the ranks and became a big boss man, who lost his job and worked at a factory, who hated that and became what??



Louis L'Amour would be so disappointed in how he skylined himself, but it made for a great shot!

He doesn't wear a cowboy hat, and he doesn't wear cowboy boots.  He works cows with a dirt bike and a flat bed pickup instead of a horse, but he's a cowboy all the same.  I've always been so thankful and proud to be his woman, no matter what job he was working, but a couple days ago I remembered those old dreams and thought.......'s funny how that worked out!

Oh how I love this sexy man!!

Till next time..........God Bless!


  1. Thank you for the smile today, Goodwife. :)

  2. Yay for you both . I always liked bull riders as a kid, had a ginormous crush on one for years. Life goes on , I met and Married Martin . we were cleaning his old house one day and in the basement I saw something familiar,I said "whats that?" "Oh hes said"thats just my bull rope/rigging" He rode bulls in college rodeo . Guess I got my bull rider/cowboy too!

  3. It is funny how things turn out! Is that your hubby's silhouette? What editing program do you use?

  4. Thanks ladies! Fernvalley that is funny! Nicole that is his silhouette. I just use the free version of picnik to edit, but that picture actually came out looking just like that.

  5. What a great story! Dreams do come true. Your 'cowboy' no matter how he dresses or what he rides is still you knight in shining armor.

    Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady
