"Thanks for being my un official wife/girlfriend/good advice giver"

That's what my good friend Chris said to me tonight. I mean to tell ya, when those cowboys get into the tequila they are a riot! The only time you really have to worry about a cowboy (or anyone for that matter) is when they are drinking Whiskey. That Pic above is Chris.

"Thanks for being my un official wife/girlfriend/good advice giver" what a nut.

I had nothing good to write about today and I really haven't left the house in over a week. What the hell is wrong with me? I need to get out of the house. I think it would help my morale.

That being said, Chris wants me to come up to Denton where he lives tomorrow so we can go to the Ft. Worth Stockyards. Those of you who don't know what that means,no we are not going to a barn with cows and such. The stockyards is a part of old downtown Ft. Worth where the stockyards (real ones) used to be. Now its all bars and cafe's and fun things like that! I used to love going there when I was in high school as soon as I was old enough to get in to the bars. I used to come home on the weekends while I was in college to go out there too. Love it. Lot's of country bars and people dressed like you guys imagine Texans dress. Anyway, Chris lives about 45 mins from me on the way to Ft. Worth, so I am going to ask Mom if I can borrow a car and drive over there because I really want to hang out. That way I can leave the car at Chris's and he will drive to the Stockyards, so I wont be driving after drinks. He is closer to the bars so we can just take a cab home if he gets drunk too. Which, last time I was at the stock yards with him he didn't get drunk, he had to carry my drunk friend to my truck. What a nice guy. I hope I can borrow a car. Jeff borrowed mom's car the other day and it got backed over so I don't see why I wouldn't be able to borrow one. We will see. I really need to get out of the house and Chris is the only friend who even acts like they want to hang out with me around here. Blah. Morale is low my friends.

I yelled at him the other day when he texted me that he was out in the stockyards without me but I don't think it's fair to make him come pick me up because I am so out of the way.

Mr. Chris is a bareback rider (i dont wanna hear a word out of you Maria!) and a saddle bronc rider, those are rodeo sports for those of you who have no idea. He had surgery a while back on his foot so he's starting to ride again in the spring. He was good before he got hurt too!

Pictures of Chris:
See? He takes boot pics too!
Classy. Flip flops, no shirt, and a tootsie pop.

Thans for being my non-boyfriend/drunk cowboy/running buddy!


  1. I reckon you Texans must be the zaniest folks of all the states. If I'd have known this, I'd have bonded with Bush more over the years, cos now I know more about where he comes from.
    You guys look like you're a riot to be with, but I always guessed that just by the way you and your mum write.
    Hallso, I think it's funny to see all those 'physical therapy' ads around the rodeos cos it looks like a lot of backs get put out of place.
    :)) great learning more about Texas.

  2. I will bring my camera! It's gonna be so fun! If- I actually get to go.

    Rachel: Yes! He is! The whole 3 years I have known him, except for a few weeks in the summer, he's always single! Cowboy... roaming the trails alone! haha!

    He's a good friend though, even though he answers all personal questions with a question, and avoids emotions like the plague!

    We are a lot alike!

  3. Yep - I liked the ad for physical therapy too! I am sure they need it after riding those broncs. My cousin's kid is one of the top young bronc riders in California - I think he's 15-18 or ??? Ouch.

  4. I noticed that after I posted this last night, it's true. They all get hurt. Chris is on his 8th concussion, 3rd level 3, so he's been hit in the head a few times, which is probably why he likes to hang out with me. :)

  5. I like the 1st pic... Crow Hopping... been there done that! And then you shoot out of the ejection seat!
