In celebration of my new release
THE COWBOY AND THE GIRL IN THE HOT PINK CHAPS
I’ve devised this fun cowboy contest.
Below are three categories of some memorable cowboy sayings.
Pick the one you like the best and tell me why.
I’ll pick my favorite comment from each category, and the winners will receive a free kindle version of the book.
Ready? Here we go!
CATEGORY ONE – GENERAL SAYINGS
Generally, you ain’t learnin’ nothing when your mouth’s a-jawin’.
If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there with ya.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.
It’s better to keep your mouth shut and look stupid than open it and prove it.
Just ’cause trouble comes visiting doesn’t mean you have to offer it a place to sit down.
Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back.
The only good reason to ride a bull is to meet a nurse.
Treat a woman like a racehorse, and she’ll never be a nag.
There’ are two theories to arguin’ with a woman. Neither one works.
CATEGORY TWO: THINGS A COWBOY SHOULD NOT DO
Don’t squat with your spurs on.
Don’t let your yearnings get ahead of your earnings.
Don’t dig for water under the outhouse.
Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction.
Never ask how stupid someone is ’cause they’ll turn around and show you.
Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.
Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
CATEGORY THREE: ALL ABOUT HORSES
If you get thrown from a horse, you have to get up and get back on, unless you landed on a cactus; then you have to roll around and scream in pain.
A cowboy is a man with guts and a horse.
If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride.
The horse stopped with a jerk– and the jerk fell off!
When in doubt, let your horse do the thinkin’.
Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse.
LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR COMMENTS, AND GOOD LUCK!!
