Friday's Top Ten

Based on last week's Top Ten comments, a few of the choices struck a chord. So in no particular order, I'll begin with . . .

The top ten things about cowboys:

10. Some of them play football

  9. Most drive pick-ups

  8. And ride horses

  7. And sometimes bulls

  6. All look good in tight jeans :)

  5. And know how to rope

  4. They work hard

  3. And play hard

  2. They're independent

 And the #1 thing about cowboys:

  1. They wear spurs and chaps . . . just sayin'

So, d'you write about cowboys?

Shirley said...

They wear big hats. And tip them when they come across a woman.

Their scent!

Oh my!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Nice list. ;)

Theresa Milstein said...

I really like your list feature!

I've never been enamored with cowboys, but maybe because my dad made me watch boring westerns as a kid. And then there's nothing like studying history to ruin the romance of the cowboy.

This is the perfect place to quote, My heroes have always been cowboys.

NOTE TO ALL:
I haven't been able to access any comments or my own dashboard since Wednesday evening. I thought the problem was Blogger, but now I'm accessing through a different browser on my computer. It's way slow. As soon as I figure out what's going on, I'll be back to answer your comments more individually and to visit blogs and comment.

Happy Weekend!

Yeeha- spurs and chaps. That's all they need! ;)

Colette said...

I don't think I've actually ever met a cowboy -- not a real one anyway -- but now I feel like I'd recognize one.

Jayne said...

Love that - 'they all look good in tight jeans'. Enough said! :)

Rula Sinara said...

Ah, yes. The jeans...and they look damn good shirtless too ;)

notesfromnadir said...

You're so right about #6! YES THEY DO! :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Jayne - Jeans and chaps. Barefoot. Shirtless. A hat. Oh yeah :)

Colette - You don't know what you're missing!

Jayne/Rula/Lisa - Yes they do.

Miss Good on Paper said...

Have you read Pam Houston's "Cowboys are my Weakness"? One of my favorites! Thanks for this list, Carol.

I haven't read it, but I'll look for it. I have access to real cowboys, though, so I don't read about them much.
