...all hat and no horse...



I think that saying is about authenticity and all that--that having the hat doesn't make you a cowboy. Well, hang authenticity: I want these pink metallic chaps, and I freely admit I don't own a horse. Saw them at what LawDog calls Redneck WalMart (isn't that redundant?) but I think of it as Cowboy Walmart. It's a fabulous store. See all those hats hanging from the ceiling in the background? Fabulous. I bought a nice straw cowgirl hat that day that will keep the sun out of my eyes when I'm gardening. Great stuff.




Anyway, back to the chaps-- I won't be having these, because they are only made for small children for some sick and twisted reason. No, I wouldn't wear them in public, but they might spice up my blog posting.




Come to that, a few weeks ago, Christina said "I don't even want to know why you have a hobby horse hanging on your bedroom doorknob." Because it makes me giggle, silly. :P




Oh! I guess I do have a horse, after all! Yee Haw!

And don't forget that your horse even makes the proper sound effects!

My 2 year old dearly wants to be a cowgirl so that place looks like her idea of heaven. Off topic but I have a post on door progress...I'll whistle one up for you one day!

I know where you went and I love the smell of leather and denim that permanently hangs in the air in that store!
