    Honoring the National Day of the Cowboy 

    Sponsored in the U.S. Senate in 2005, 2006, and 2007, by Wyoming’s late U.S. Senator, Craig Thomas, the National Day of the Cowboy is a day set aside to celebrate the contribution of the Cowboy and Cowgirl to America’s culture and heritage. This year the date is today, July 26th to celebrate the National Day of the Cowboy.

    In the words of the former President Bush, “We celebrate the Cowboy as a symbol of the grand history of the American West. The Cowboy’s love of the land and love of the country are examples for all Americans.”

    Two of my favorite memories are meeting Jim Shoulders who was the stock producer at my first RCA rodeo in 1971 and Freckles Brown who was judging a bull riding event I entered in 1972 in Ardmore Oklahoma which is believed to be the first standalone bull riding event of its kind.

    Only the beginning…great song by Chicago 

    The start of my blog made me think of that song but I’m actually posting a news article from The Real Estate Center regarding the Chisholm Trail Parkway…From the (Dallas Business Journal)  Titled: Land Purchased for Cowtown Community…

    Walton Group of Companies has purchased a large tract with plans to develop an 1,100-home master-planned community.
    The group bought 268 acres by Chisholm Trail Pkwy. and is currently in discussions with builders for the project in Chisholm Trail Ranch.
    Walton is also working with Crowley ISD on a planned elementary school site in the first phase of the community’s development.   Plans are to begin delivering home lots by the end of 2015.

    Just gotta love this one… 

    Courtesy of Don Lawyer. He’s got everything else listed he might as well get this one too. Well, after it expires Don!

    South Dakota town for sale for $399K…The entire town of Swett, South Dakota, is officially on the market at a list price of $399,000. The buyer who plunks down that chunk of change will get a three-bedroom, one-bath house, a bar, a tire shop, and three trailer homes on 6.16 acres. Swett is known as a popular place for pheasant hunting, according to its Coldwell Banker listing page, Stacie Montgomery, listing agent.

    My favorite description of the property…a 1990 Volvo semi that is currently used to haul trailers stays with the purchase .

      What i do not understood is actually how you are now not actually much more
      well-favored than you might be right now. You’re very intelligent.
      You know thus significantly in terms of this topic, made me
      personally consider it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like women and
      men don’t seem to be fascinated except it is something to do with Lady gaga!
      Your own stuffs excellent. All the time deal with it up!

    NATIONAL GINGERSNAP DAY 

    My Grandma made these and they were really great! I’ve only tasted a few after that were as good.

    Celebrate today, National Gingersnap Day, by enjoying this sweet and savory treat. Gingersnaps are cookies typically made from molasses, cloves, ginger, cinnamon and brown sugar.  They are a combination of sweet and spicy and have long been enjoyed by many. Gingersnaps are a healthier alternative to other cookies, being that they are generally low in calories and have many benefits.  The ginger that is in these cookies has anti-inflammatory properties, is known to help treat nausea and fight heart disease and other illnesses.
