  1. I love the idea of a lazy cowboy. Reminded me of Patti Smith calling Sam Shepherd her cowpoke in the book, M Train.

    You can see a guy with his Stetson pushed back, a blade of grass between his teeth. leaning against a fence while cows happily graze.

    The word laconic comes to mind, that and YUP, NO THANK YA MA’AM. BEST BE GOIN’ NOW. Here’s to all lazy cowboys. 🙂
