Happy Bronco Dreams

Beneath New Mexico's expansive skies and blazing sun

This is the life, surely meant for work and rest and fun.

This faithful bronc and I ride for the Brand

Doin’ whatever needs done, together as one hand.

Keeping the Code uppermost in mind and heart

Livin’ each day to the fullest, with the courage true values will impart.

Knowin' when to stand down or take a stand, I draw the line as needed

And always try to honor that which deserves to be conceded.

Yep, I’m a real cowboy, no matter how it seems

Among the Old West’s finest, if only in my Terrier dreams…


(NOTE: Duke is a part-time Wire-hair Fox Terrier and full-time cowboy)

This is a wonderful book. Powerful text, inspiring photographs. It is on my coffee table and lives within me.

In a way, Sir William, I owe much of this to you! Through your powerfully moving writings I was introduced to the dear, dear Debbie Langford, and through her SueSwan, who wrote about April being Poetry Month, and now, I can't stop :)

So once again, I thank you for your inspiration and bringing folks together! L.

Dear Wayne,

So glad you liked this. One day when I was on the elliptical trainer doing my regular work out, there was Duke, "supervising" again. Just had to grab my camera, and then the text simply came galloping out. Thank you for stopping by and taking time to comment. L.

Oh, this is very cute and clever! The photo is absolutely adorable. When I watch my Sheltie sleeps with muffled barks and twitches, I've often wondered of what she dreams. A thoroughly delightful read. Thanks for sharing it.
