Today the prompt for #SLS is cowboy/gun/hat/horse/western. Jim has been doing a great job since taking over for Helen. I haven’t heard anything about her lately so I hope that she is doing well.
I have to share again the song that my mom used to sing us to sleep with. It is called Cowboy Jack and it holds a very special place in my memory.
I made a mini-album for my family of this song. It was one of the first minis I did and I was pretty pleased with how it came out, but I think I’m going to take some better pictures of it. I made a few of them to give to my family.
|My mom singing.|
Here’s the song as sung by Don Edwards.
Fortunately, my mom and dad’s story had a slightly happier ending since they were married for 40 years before my dad passed away.
Do you have a song that you remember from your childhood? Want me to make a mini-album for you about it? Do you like cowboys and westerns?
Also, I’m starting a new series for September. I’m using the book “3000 Pick One Questions” to see what you all have to share. Hopefully you’ll play along. For today, since the #SLS prompt is western, my question for you is:
Combat boots or cowboy boots and why? My answer is cowboy boots for sure. My dad passed away over 35 years ago and I still have a pair of his well-worn boots. Love the colors and I can remember going with him and my mom to the Western clothing stores to pick out new boots and hats.
So tell me your answer.
