Where's the song ~~ "Don't let your daughters grow up to marry a Cowboy" ?

​​​​​​​Life is tough! Requires hard physical work, long, long days of pain, dirt, and broken fingernails.​
​Days of frigid cold & scorching heat; through the dust & mud; daybreak into the darkness of nite~~​
​the heart & body becomes toughened & weathered replicating leather!​
​A forever constant factor for a real Cowboy's Wife is tons of sweat, oceans of tears and a constant 'drought' in the wallet!​
​​​​​​​​​IF​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ she wants to spend anytime at all with her Cowboy, she must do as he does, you become partners!​
​​​​​​Kick off your boots, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and envision yourself in my life!​
​... It really isn't that bad! There are many rewards to be had to make it a great lifestyle! ...​ ​​​​​​​

Which came first..

...the Chicken or the Egg??

This hen isn't giving me a clue!

Don't think she even knows! She's been here two yrs and all she wants to do is set! Doesn't really earn her 'keep' with a daily egg! THIS time she's been settin' since March! I keep marking eggs w/ a big X...a month later, I give her a new batch!

Today...I've marked my calendar! If by fall, with 3 more settin' times, I don't get any replacement chicks...either she'll go to the fryin' pan...

or the Rooster will, cuz that probably means HE is not doing his job either!

Maybe both!

(Ooops...can't do in the Rooster! His cock-a-doodle-doo's remind me every morning why we live here as we do!)

Aw, poor chicken. Maybe you could keep her just for cute? You can tell from her face that she's TRYING.

Hi. Stumbled across your blog from Bable from Babbler...from... I think Cosmic Cat... from... oh heck... HI. Nice blog! I bet that chicken will taste mighty fine!

I understand. My horses are as almost as usless as that hen... but I don't think they will taste good... or would they?
