Actually, it's a very pleasant post, but knowing you, I expected something to jump out of the screen at me.

Just still feeling gut punched by the news.

That's a hard life man.... I was there...

Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rawhide
She rollin', rollin', rollin'
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them doggies rollin', rawhide
Through rain an' wind an' weather
Hellbent for leather
Wishin' my gal was by my side
All the things I'm missin'
Good vittles, love an' kissin'
Are waitin' at the end of my ride
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Head 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Rawhide
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, cut 'em out
Cut 'em out, ride 'em in
Rawhide
Keep movin', movin', movin'
Though they're disapprovin'
Keep them doggies movin', rawhide
Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope, throw an' brand 'em
Soon we'll be livin' high an' wide

Rawhide!!! That works for me, Kid. I was actually thinking about Toby Keith's "Should've Been A Cowboy"... but that got me to thinking about a Cowboy song, and then I remembered my absolute favorite by the late, great black Irishman, Phil Lynott.

what I'm listening to
I am just a cowboy, lonesome in the trail.
Starry night, campfire light, and the coyote calls where the howlin' winds will.
So I ride out to the ol' sundown. I am just a cowboy, lonesome on the trail.
Lord I'm just thinking about a certain female.
And the nights we spent together, riding on the range.
Looking back, it doesn't seem so strange.
Roll me over and turn me around. Let me keep spinning 'til I hit the ground.
Roll me over and let me go, riding in the rodeo.

"Roll me over and turn me around" sounds more like broke back mountain.... arf he said.
