That’s me on the bull, the photo on the right. Notice how the bull is leaning his head into my leg? Usually a bull tries to get the rider off of his back, but this guy wanted me to stick around awhile. He was looking into the camera, but then when I started scratching his neck he sandwiched my leg underneath his head and he wouldn’t let go. I think he liked me.

Will Rogers' Cowboy Wisdom

  1. western-clownNever slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
  2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
  3. There are 2 theories to arguing with a woman...neither works.
  4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
  5. Always drink upstream from the herd.
  6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
  7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.
  8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.
  9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
  10. If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
  11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back in.
  12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


Before I went to the rodeo, there was a parade and a “shoot-out” in the middle of Main Street. Of course the sheriff (on the left, that’s me on the right) made sure that the “good guys” won.
