The Old Cowboy is going to spend some time today standing in a booth at the Nebraska Boat Sport and Travel Show in Lincoln, Nebraska. The buildings will be full of folks hiding behind a mask for a short time. They will walk around wearing their favorite hunting or fishing clothing, and talking about the great out of doors. For that short length of time they will be able to dream a little and escape the rigors of the daily grind. Then they will head for the door and the parking lot and the reality of life will return. Life is just that way while we are here on earth.
