boutonnieres and big chaps

Cass is affecting different accents these days.

Today he's Fast Draw McBoy, pretending to wear a side-arm, boots and a (what must be a) ten-gallon hat, riding the range, catching those mangy cows that try to out-run his branding iron.

And he does all this with a stomp of his boots and a hearty yell of:


CAR-NATION!

I said, unwisely,'hon, I think you're thinking of 'Tarnation' and was roundly scoffed at: Why on earth would cowboys be talking about tar??

mmph. Right.





get along, little dogie!!

Didn't you know that cowboys just love them some flowers? Carnations, mums, tulips, roses...

Well, his logic is perfect. Tar? Not in the wild west -- none of the roads were paved.
