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! ...​ ​​​​​​​

Willy Nelson sings it well...

...."one the road again!"
(I think he wrote it just for us too!)

It's a done deal.
I hope Texas is ready for us.
(and our son and  future DIL!)

Cowboy started the ball rolling by applying for a Gvmt job.
He's made it thru 2 of their drawn out processes, two weeks ago.
We must wait for another 30 days+ for the next step.
Working with the Military Working Dogs, at Lackland AFB in San Antonio.
They breed and train around 1100+ dogs there for our troops, ICE, etc.
In the meantime...
Our son calls and tells me he found a job for me!
(It definitely helps to know someone who knows someone these days!)
My steps happened faster, as this position is with a Govmt contractor. 
At Lackland AFB also.
I will be working at DLIELC.
Defense Language Institute English Language Center.
And only about 20 seconds away from our Son!
(it is where our country trains all the worlds military forces to speak English! Who knew!)
Hope he realizes he can never get away from me this way!
My start date is May 29
A ton to do between now and then! Not to mention a 4 day drive!
