C is for Cowboys
What girl doesn’t love a cowboy? They’re strong and tough. They ride horses all day and rope cattle. They have a strong sense of right and wrong and most of them (at least in my mind and my books) choose to do the right thing. They have a firm moral compass and don’t stray too far from their path.
They look so appealing in their western shirts with the pearlized snap buttons, jeans, and cowboy boots. And don’t forget the hat! The hat is what screams “Yep, I’m a cowboy.”
Every cowboy I’ve met (and I’ve met more than a few) has been polite. They say “Yes, ma’am,” and “No, ma’am.” Quite often they offer to help if you’re lifting something heavy or doing something that looks like it might be a struggle for you. I’ve even had a few older cowboys call me ‘little lady’ or ‘young lady.’ I especially like the ‘young lady’ as I’m far from young.
That’s not to say all cowboys are fine, upstanding men. There’s some bad guys in their ranks, that’s for sure. They would be the cattle rustlers, horse thieves, and others of dubious ethics. Those bad guys can help my western stories by bringing in a little conflict and excitement, while the good guys always make things right and save the day.
So, what do you like about cowboys?
