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! ...​ ​​​​​​​

I Think H.O.W. Was Born Blind...

...and I just now figured it out!!

A good blogging friend created these 'pictures' for me, and no, she's never met or seen me either, her imagination just went wild!

Really Wild!

She is a single Mom with a bunch of little critters running about her place... besides her 'chillins', and to top that off, she's going to college to change her life~for a better life!
I'm really proud of her! (like a Mom except I'm not her Mom...
but like a Mom anyhow, I'm proud of her!)

Now ~the problem I have with these "Creations" she made for me are:

1-She should have been studying instead of creating and thinking about BlogWorld Buds!
2-She should have been sewing those clothes for her girls that aren't completed yet!
3-She should have been bonding with those 2 cutest fuzzy additions to her life!
4-She should have been wearing InterNET glasses before she delved into my world!
(see that picture in the sidebar to the left?
Yea, the Maxine one...that's really me, I posed for that! **wink! )

So, Jenn...now listen to your Mom! Just pretend Ok?
Get busy on those 3 top things in that list!
"Do you hear me?" I saaaaiiddd....."DO YOU HEAR ME?!"

You all know I have not put my "Mug" out here for anyone to see, except my "Coffee Mug"! ~That is a mirrored image of ME you know! Coffee! Coffee should have been my name!
And I do change "Mugs" periodically, in case you haven't noticed.
Oops, I forgot....the picture of Maxine in my left sidebar..is my "Mug" too..
(oh yea my "Mug" is also in the anniversary post with pictures ~ IONS & IONS ago.)

I realize I am selfish. (..even Hydro had a problem with me posting her pictures~at first~in my Procrastination post...then she gave in and said "oh...Ok...leave them there.."
See she and I are like 2 peas in a pod! Like Mother, like Daughter...imagine that!)
Most all of you, I've been able to see who I'm talking to or snooping in on and it is really nice to have a face matched up to the words you write and pictures you display, but you see, I'm just a plain ol' country gal, nothing more....well, maybe Worn Out Woman/Weary Ol' Wife too.
So I will gladly take this creation below, that Jenn gave me with a big Thank you!!...
even though you should have had your InteNET glasses on, Dear Girlfriend!....
will pretend it's me, and I give you all permission to pretend it's me!
How's that?

Now, you must be wonderin about my title to this post...I know H.O.W. may not have been blind at birth, but...now, I believe he must have been blind at the time our
"Dance through Life"

I showed him these 'renditions' of ME that Jenn did just for MuWAA!

His response was.... "..yeap....in times gone by"!

And he must STILL be blind...thank goodness! *gotta love him for that!

What a cute, fun post, Barb! Those WOW Cowgirl graphics are perfect! And I am sure that your Cowboy has always had excellent eye sight and outstanding vision when it came to you! Though I kinda know where you're coming from 'cause the same stuff happens around here sometimes... but, you know what "they" say... LOVE is Blind! Enjoy your day as you and your Cowboy continue with your Dance through Life... God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~


Sarah said...

Yep, this is exactly how I picture ya. You in all your hottness giddy up. :)

Linda said...

I'm just glad I'm the only one that dislikes my mugshot!

Amanda said...

Nice pics, the first one kinda reminds me of my Proghorns in Love
photos but I don't know why. I am getting to be more of the Maxine ilk too but I felt the stirrings of my old cowgirls heart yesterday when I took off up the trail on my horse by myself yesterday. She is of the Maxine type too. She is 16 years old and has had 10 foals. I wondered if she was thinking of her younger days as I was. sigh

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Wow ! those are some pics ! H.O.W. will have to take something to slow his heart down ! hehehehhe

Christina said...

H.O.W. is a sweetie.... I love the graphics! In my mind, I can be pretty hot.... the reality... you don't see my mug out there either! LOL Have a great day! (((hug)))

Janice Thomson said...

It wouldn't matter if you were uglier than sin and had skinny little chicken legs - your heart is huge, full of compassion and tempered with glorious humor.

On the other hand... I really like these graphics. :)
Delightful post as usual Barb.

Sage said...

HoW sounds like a real gentleman, not just a cowboy.. and I bet you have enjoyed your dance through life (so far, long may it continue).. :-)

Jenn is good on her graphics...

terri said...

HoW is a sweetheart and Janice said it best. It's what's inside that counts anyway, and your insides hold a heart of gold.

The Blonde Duck said...

Those are cute. I love them! Dance Through Life...so cute...

Train Wreck said...

What fun!

I love this post -- it's so breezy and light. Just what I needed today!


Egghead said...

So Jenn can put out some pretty racy cowgirl pictures. The make me smile but I relate to not putting your picture out there much. I swear I am looking more like Maxine every day. The sun has taken a toll but heck. We are who we are and it is how we live our lives that is important. H.O.W. is sweet. Just like my farmer.

JennyLu said...

Oh gosh, thanks. And yes, I could take your "mommy advise" to heart but you need to understand; sometimes we need a diversion from our day to day complicated lives. Like your club you went to the other day, that was your diviation.

Mountain Dweller said...

Great pictures and blog - I shall enjoy having a peek at your life!

jeanne said...

Barb, I always have a good chuckle when I read your blog. I will hold on to these images now and think of you. At least until you decide to grace us with a photo of yourself. smile. I love your humor Barb. Keep it coming!

Hugs, Jeanne

Linda said...

Hi Barb, It's good to meet you!! Love the graphics Jenn made for you. It took me a long time before I published my mug shot. I honestly don't have many recent pictures of me. I'm always the one holding the camera. I'll be back when I've had more coffee. Look forward to your visits.

colleen said...

Hi Barb. I guess H.O.W. is the cowboy. I live in the country to where they bale hay and flat foot!

Adventure girl wanna be said...

I love those pics! So cute! and sassy! Perfect!

Annie Wicking said...

Great Pictures... No wonderful Cowboys love Cowgirls..lol

Iron Needles said...

Thanks for taking a look at my efforts. I am going to enjoy the peak into your goings on!

Anonymous said...

Funny stuff. I like the idea of combining the two shots...well, maybe not.

Renie Burghardt said...

Hey Barb,

Love Jenny's graphics of you! And I'm sure your cowboy has and always will see you as beautiful. That's love!

Have a great weekend!



Alex said...

(clears her throat) e'hem! What's up with the hottie cowgirl pics? :) Happy Saturday!

DesertHen said...

Countrychick took photos of me at the wedding we went to last weekend.....she thinks they are great....they scare me though....=)

Have a wonderful weekend.......=D

I can't wait to hear what you think about the soup! I think the vinegar is actually just a nice subtle addition. It really doesn't make for too much tang.


P.S. Thank you for your comments. I don't thank you nearly enough but I want you to know that I always look for them and they mean so much!!!! I wish you were my mom!!!!! :)

Hi W.O.W. ! I see you figured out how to do the music playlist! My hubby and I went to Nevada over Labor Day weekend; and saw some prints just like the ones your friend did for you! The artist was a gal out of Montana I think, she did a great job.....would have loved to have a print or two of hers! :))
