Cowboy enlightenment

Saw this flag in front of a house during one of our walks and loved the cool light and shadow patterns. Perhaps this is the home of a retired rancher. Or a wanna-be-rancher.

In honor of the cowboy, both real and legendary, here are a few Cowboy proverbs (some of which are sayings by Will Rogers):

Don't squat with your spurs on.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there with ya.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction.

Great colors! And nice to see that you're no longer objectionable. I'll be stopping by regularly while on vacation so keep these beautiful photos coming!

Yes, it's nice not being objectionable anymore...

I'm looking forward to your visits and reading about your adventures in France :-)
