The Old Cowboy has had a good talk with one friend and shared an email or two with another friend today, Both reminded me of a fact from the Oklahoma oilfields; Cowboys don’t let problems bully them. When a cowboy runs into a problem, he’ll take a good long look at it, if there is time. Then he’ll pull his hat down a bit tighter, and he’ll say a prayer. When he figures it out he’ll deal with that problem. Some aren’t worth the time to bother with, so the cowboy will just back up and ride around them. The bigger problems will cause him to settle a little deeper in the saddle. Then he’ll deal with them, come what may. Cowboys don’t look for problems and they don’t like bullies. Most of all a Cowboy doesn’t back down. Yep, I figure we need more cowboys.
