Funny thinking about that little incedent after all these years. When I got to the hospital I still had on all my cowboy gear. My bull spurs were semi permanately attached to the boots and then I had ankle straps to keep my boots on. Prepping me for surgery I was trying to explain that the spurs don't come off the boots. They heard it as those don't come off. I woke up several hours later wearing a blue hospital gown and a pair of cowboy boots with bull spurs and ankle straps. Picture me walking around the ward pushing a IV thing and walking kinda funny wearing a pair of boots and spurs. Bull riding spurs angel in so even if your toes are pointed straight ahead the rowels are still jabbed into the side of the bull. You have to walk kinda like a dancing chicken to keep them from hooking together and taking you for a tumble.
All I had initially said was those don't come off.

Morning Cowboy Marines
I was just thinking about Doc a Appaloosa I had. I used to take him to Biltmore to ride and it would take me ten minuets to get on him and then he would buck for two or three minutes. Everyone would come and stand around and watch the show. Those were the good old days.
I enjoyed taking him there because there were so many things for him to overcome, wood bridges, water, going under the Hwy bridge, fallen trees, old barb wire fences, deer, other horses, people, and even bike riders. By the time I got rid of him you could take him anywhere.
So much for the good old days.
Cody is still doing good and I feel like I'm just throwing money in the air just feeding him. Karen get upset at me sometime because of my attitude about him but I always said I wouldn't have a ornament horse around here but its hard to put him down after loosing Redman. We expected Redman to live another six or more years. One day he was great and the next morning down.
Miss that horse and my good friend. Camp Buddy isn't the same anymore

The Farmer who lived next door to our place, on Caughdenoy Rd., in Upstate NY, Had an odd looking team of horses. The Left side horse,(I think that's called the 'Off-Side', Right Montana?), was a big Bay mare, and the other horse, was a Bay Gelding. That Gelding was maybe a head shorter, at the withers. He had the hooves, and the shape of a riding horse, and Five different Brands on his flanks, and shoulders. I was 14yrs old at the time, and I was helping the Don, the farmer, Get his hay in. I harnessed the team, and I'm looking that little horse over, and I was wondering if that little guy, was going to be a handicap for the mare. They took the harnesses and Bridles, like they were anxious to get started, and that little horse got down, and did his share of the work and then some. We finished what hay don had down, and Unhitched from the wagon. Don, had just bought that Gelding, at the auction, and got him cheap. We were wondering, why anyone would let a worker like him go, for any price. Don said, he had to have been a riding horse, so he decided to mount up and ride the horse around the yard. The instant Dons butt touched that horses back, He went to bucking. Don was hanging on to the harness, for dear life. The horse was bucking, and heading straight for the stable door. which was noway high enough for a man on horseback. I've seen men get wiped off a horses back like that, in movies, and laughed my head off. Seeing it actually happen, scared the hell out of me. I thought Don was a goner. I ran over to him, and he sat up, shaking his head. He grinned at me and said,"Well, I guess we know now, why he didn't come with a saddle."

Got our Duramax Chevy 2500 4x4 crew cab .
2005 with 114,000 for $18,600,
Delivered here from Houston. Ultimate autos (90% of sales by internet)
I was a nervous wreck for a week after we wired the money until the delivery.
I was imagining the ways an internet dealer could set up a phoney outfit and just take the money.
When we finally saw it off the truck and waiting for us, I was thanking God.
My wife however was cussing the little scrathes, the dust, the hole in the bed from a hitch. etc....
She refused to drive it for 24 hours but when she did then she liked it.
I read the Duramax portion of the manual and I had no idea there was so much special TLC required for Diesels.
Hopefully I can keep it nice for many years.
It will be mostly a family car, to replace the Caravn that go totaled.
Those new cars nowadays are one time use. It was totaled by a fender bender.... 4 years of payments down the tubes.
