Well, Howdy!

I was over from the UK visiting a friend and I found this on the pavement/sidewalk. Cow girl, horses, wagon wheels– just like I seen in the movies.

Special Dad

I don’t remember where I found this, most likely at a garage sale or thrift store.

Can’t We Still Get Along?

I took a walk in my neighborhood and found a set of four hand-made flash cards. The others are really funny too but this one is the best. Out of the mouths of babes.
