I Wanna Be A Cowboy...

Since I was a lil' kid, I've been intrigued with the wild west.

As I was doin' some spring cleanin', I came across this booklet I drew back when I was in Elementary school.

(Is that Mike Brady in the fringed jacket and cowboy hat?)

Looks like that lil' one armed baby has a spring stickin' out of her head. The poor lil' thing. But look how happy they all are.

(Too bad we didn't have spell check in those days.)

Is that Mike Brady again but with a beard, workin' on a wagon wheel? I thought he was an architect.
Jeepers, I must have had a Brady Bunch Fatal Attraction back then.

I always wished I could lived back in those early days.
Judgin' by this outfit, I would have been the town barber or a prisoner at the local jail.

Your childhood art is wonderful. I have several things similar to these. As for the picture of you, it is just too cute. I love the stripes. I love it that your people are so smiley. Luv it all! You are too much.

Oh my! Too funny. I found a book I wrote in 1st grade about mermaids and fish. The illustrations were insane and it was how the mermaids used fishing poles to catch fish. I posted it on my blog a few months back for a good laugh. LOL

Hmm, some things never change. You're just as clever today as you were back then. Your Moms was a good egg for keeping these for you.
