Who doesn’t love a cowboy? I grew up with my very own, and Uncle Dave taught me
much about being strong, in-your-face, feisty, and a teensy bit gruff. He was

and legs that bowed. But inside? The man was as mushy as a biscuit left out in
The proverbial cowpoke is often portrayed that way in novels, but in Read More...
