Memorable car of the day:
fall in love on the internet. I know, because WE have. I can say this now
because they are both passed. If you
were around here when they were active, I would bet you fell in love with them
also. I have mentioned both ladies, one, Jean (Sybil) of OPP, AL. I wanted to hug Jean when I would read her
Blog. She wrote just like she lived and
Pauline (Paula) of Pleasanton, Texas. Somehow
her blog caught my blog. We established
an e-mail relationship, Paula was one of those folks who thought in poetry,
rhymes,..... word connections etc.
I asked her
once if I could use one of her poems in a book I was writing. She sent me
several for the book and others and said I could use them anytime I wanted.
I was cleaning my desk and I saw a brown envelope under STUFF. I found this, I never used it. I never asked, but meant to ask, "Is this cowgirl YOU?"
“Wanna Be Cowgirl”
By Pauline Lieck
shirt is shiny to match her boots.
country people are not her roots.
a horse, doesn’t know how,
the experience of milking a cow.
tight jeans and a little name belt,
silver buckle and a hat made of felt.
coyote dangling from her ears,
and dreams as sunset nears.
own a ranch, but wishes she did,
these thoughts since she was a kid.
truck and pretending to be,
She’s a ‘Wanna
be Cowgirl,” don’t you see?
a Cowboy will make her his wife,
she can have a real cowgirl’s life.
start to come, she must grow up
Give up her
dreams and the pick-up truck.
the shiny shirt for a little housedress,
busy cooking and clean up the mess.
She’s save the
belt to prove her size,
AS she gets
larger around the thighs.
is minding her Grandchildren, telling this story,
“Wanna be Cowgirl” in all her glory.
I had hoped
to stop by and visit on our next trip thru San Antonio and learn what happened.
I knew John’s family was worried about ‘the inheritance’ but I knew Paula would
handle that part.
daughters that loved her to pieces, I think she lived with one of them in the
end, but do not know.
read the poem above, my eyes teared up a little, I just had to print it. As I said, you can fall in love on the net.
PS: My cowgirl! At Wall Drug in the Dakotas.BUT there was hanky panky here!!!! just sayin'.
