lot of dolls


It seems today it international doll day. And by request from Lanetta J Sprott, I’m writing about dolls. Now this maybe a little strange for a cowboy to be playing with dolls. But out there on the range you do a few things that may seem a like a little strange for a cowboy to do. But then you’re not a cowboy. You can’t take many things out there when you’re riding heard. There is one thing you just can’t get along without, you could but it no fun to be without, and that is paper.  Now there is many way to carry paper but generally you take a book like the monkey wards catalog or the sears and saw-a-buck they came free in the mail. It gives you something to read and dream about and keeps you clean if you know what I’m talken about.

 Now on occasion the only book around was one of ma’s old Macalls magazines.  Well you see there is this page with something to cut out. 

Her name was Betsy just a pretty little thing. Well we would cut her out and dress her up take a twig with a little flower and water paste, sit her up by the fire so she could look at the moon and then sing her a love song and dream of dancing with my gal.  



Yep cowboys don’t play with doll. So don’t go tellen those lies. 

Thank you and god bless

: ) There once was a cowboy, alone on the range, his horse and his dolly his only companions..Betsy would be there, awake in the morning, waiting for cuddling and glasses of beer...
