The Cowboy Returns

I figger Friday the 13th is a good day to try to get this Cowboy Commentary back and running. I hate to admit it but I jest may have bit off more than I could chew. Besides still running a small herd of cattle and keeping the doors open at Drovers Mercantile, I write most of the stories for the Kansas Cowboy newspaper. Then I went and set up to promote Rural issues and help create a sense of community. Something had to give and I let this here Cowboy blog go for a while.  
Hope I can get back to writin jest a little on these pages. Ive become somewhat political about Rural America. A little study of past Commentaries will tell ya that. I believe the good ol U S of A is selling its soul by not actively preserving and promoting  
Americas heartland. The food industry is being taken over by industrialists who have no interest in husbandry, but see only dollar bills as their guide to production. There are many people who understand the dilemma but are scattered across America and have no real connection to one another. What we need is a national community. Just how that is accomplished is yet to be discovered.  
Ive spent the past couple of months doing many of the same things Ive always done. Except for a few days, the weather has been exceptional. Life on my favorite hoss jest feels good. Ive had a little windmill work to do. Sure glad it wasnt below zero when I had to do that! It was actually shirtsleeve weather! All these great temperatures have a noticeable drawback. No MOISTURE! Oh, weve had a little, probably just enough to keep us out of the kind of troubles they are having in Texas and Oklahoma. But, everyone is a bit on the nervous side, eyeing the horizon for signs of snow or rain. We had a little rain last evening. Almost forgot what it was like, but it only dampened the surface and today we have another bright and wonderfully sunny day. 
Hope everyone is having a good start to the New Year. Well see ya down the trail. 
So Long, 
The Cowboy
