Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22164 – 734:
It’s going to take some time to adjust to the new schedule, especially during this “breaking-in” period. This week I will learn what the morning crew does so I have to be to work by 4 am. I am a morning person but I have to get sleep time in, too. I used to have a separate blog for jokes which I have been raiding along with old emails I have saved. I am working on one that will be a keeper in my book but I don’t want to rush through it. Instead, I will leave you with this western saga.
A cowboy rode into town and stopped at the saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on newcomers. When he left the bar some time later, he realized that his horse had been stolen.
The cowboy rushed back into the bar, handily flipped his gun into the air, caught it above his head without even looking, and then fired a shot into the ceiling. “Who stole my horse!” he yelled with surprising forcefulness.
No one answered.
“I’m gonna have another beer and if my horse ain’t back outside by the time I’m finished, I’m gonna do what I did back in Texas. And let me tell you, I don’t wanna have to do what I did back in Texas!”
Some of the locals shifted restlessly.
The cowboy had another beer, then walked outside to find his horse was back. So, he saddled up and prepared to ride out of town.
The bartender wandered out of the bar and said, “Say partner, what happened in Texas anyway?”
The cowboy turned back and said, “I had to walk home!”
Always remember you’re unique, just like everyone else.
