On Genuine Old Cowboys
Teddy Blue Abbott wrote:
"A man has got to be at least seventy-five years old to be a real old cowhand. I started young and I am seventy-eight. Only a few of us are left now, and they are scattered from Texas to Canada. The rest have left the wagon and gone ahead across the big divide, looking for a new range. I hope they find good water and plenty of grass. But wherever they are is where I want to go."
---- Old cowboy Teddy Blue Abbott, writing in his autobiography "We Pointed them North," 1939
Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
