The Old Cowboy on his drive to and…

The Old Cowboy on his drive to and from Freemont had time to ponder things. Now it is true I fit with the some where over 60 bunch, even if I don’t act like it at times. It is true when you are my age you do tend to shake your head when you hear foolish things. In my most recent search for a congregation to work with, I have been told by several gaggles of elders that they figure a young preacher with a young family would better fit them. That got me to thinking about watching bluetick coonhounds down home in the Oklahoma oil fields. I learned a lot while watching the young pups, old dogs, young preachers and old preachers.

Tail chasing is a natural behavior common among young pups. After you watch a bit you figure out they chaise their tail because some old guy has been shaking it at ’em, or they just want attention or they have a flea infestation. Now that old dog is a little more territorial. The old dog wants to be approached carefully some days, and always wants you to approach him respectfully, or he will bite. He’ll especially bite if you are pulling on his tail, or leg. So goes life around young pups, and old dogs along with young preachers and old preachers. Y’all have a good week!!!
