A Cowboy At Heart...!
Do you know what a true cowboy is?
A cowboy is nothing more than a prepper wearing cowboy boots. I mean, think about it. Both have a fair amount of common sense, both are used to being ready for any emergency, both are used to making do with what's available, and both are used to depending on no one but themselves and friends and family in the hard times!
Both the prepper an the cowboy have learned everything that is said by and promised by the government is best taken with a grain of salt. Both are not ashamed to pray, both stand when the national anthem is played, both still take off their head cover and place their hands over their hearts when the flag passes by!
Both the cowboy and the prepper are folks you can trust to stand shoulder to shoulder with you in a firefight, folks that will gladly watch your back just as they would expect you to do for them, and folks that will help in any way they can when it's needed...never expecting anything in return!
Both believe that it isn't the state you're in that matters, but instead it's the state of mind you're in that makes you what you are!
One of the most important things that both the cowboy and the prepper instinctively know is that a sense of humor is of vital importance with things the way they are! So, in keeping with that thought, I figured I'd leave you with a little bit of cowboy humor...!
Behind every successful rancher is a wife who works in town."
...........An old Western proverb
"Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction."
"A bronc rider should be light in the head and heavy in the seat."
"Broke is what happens when a cowboy lets his yearnin's get ahead of his earnin's."
"Any cowboy can carry a tune. The trouble comes when he tries to unload it."
"When in doubt, let your horse do the thinkin'."
"When a cowboy's too old to set a bad example, he hands out good advice."
"Worry is like a rockin' horse. It's something to do that don't get you nowhere."
"Poor is having to sell the horse to buy the saddle."
One final thing that the Prepper and the cowboy have in common. That's enjoying a good cup of coffee with a friend, so let's you and me get a fresh cup and sit outside for a bit!
