Happy Throwback Thursday, readers!

Happy Throwback Thursday, everybody. For those of you who weren't here for our last Throwback Thursday installment, this week I'll be continuing with my series of cowboy poems. I have to chuckle when I read these, because they very literally have no rhyme or reason. There's no clear plot line, sketchy scenery descriptions, and usually… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: More Cowboy Poems
Hardly anyone I went to high school with reads my blog, but if they did they'd be rolling their eyes right now.
