The Cowboy Look

This weekend I went into a barbeque restaurant in Cheyenne, looking around for a friend whom I was to meet there.  A man sitting at a table by the front door, eating alone, asked me, “Are you a rancher?”

I said that I was, although that is an exaggeration.  I am a lawyer who lives on a ranch without making a living as a true rancher.  I was wearing a cowboy hat, jeans, and boots.  I guess I looked the part.

Then he remarked, “You ride horses a lot, don’t you!”

I told him that I have ridden horses since I was very young.  I wondered what he was getting at.  Then it dawned on me.  I had a similar conversation with a lady in The Black Hills last fall.

Apparently, my cowboy legs are remarkably bowed.  Here I thought it was my hat these city slickers noticed.

I am starting to feel self-conscious.  Naw, more like proud. I don’t mind being a tourist attraction.
