Cowboy up!

It's that time of year again. The jingle of spurs, the *pop* and *fizz* of beer cans being open, the constant cries of "Yahoo!" and "Yee-haw!" and "Hey, baby!" fill the air. The scent of mini donuts, beer and manure fill the air. Everyone wiggles into denim, cowboy hats are worn by the police and nothing says "Wahoo!" than a cowboy hat with a whistle.
That's's the Calgary Stampede when every woman, child and accountant become a cowboy for ten days. Yee-haw! My city has got the fevah! Can you hear it? Can you see it? Can you smell it? Oh yeah, for ten days tight jeans are worn by guys, and yes, cowboy hats are worn by the police. Grrrowf!
It leaves me distracted. Thank gawd for Levi's, Lee, or Wranglers. I don't care what guys are wearing as long as it's tight and made of denim.
Why oh why is the Stampede only 10 days?

Oh yeah...cuz not everyone looks like this...
Some look like this... and there's just not enough free beer on this planet to make me wanna stare at it for more than 10 days. Yahoo my little buckaroos. Ya-freakin'-hoo.

That last guy...he's probably the best lover of them all. My mama always said, "go for the frogs. the princes are always too busy looking at themselves in the mirror to pay any attention to you. the frogs will worship you."

No wonder I like Kash so much. No one else does, but he's MY cowboy fantasy. :)

Ooooo, Jenna. I loved this blog!

I love cowboys, the real ones who are a little rough around the edges. They just do it for me! It's like when my guy comes in from work smelling like an airplane fuel tank with oil under his fingernails. He's all like "oh, just let me get cleaned up." BUt I'm all like, "no way, not until you leave a few of those greasy fingerprints on me first!" Lol.

Thanks for a great little Friday pick me up,

Anna J. Evans

Whoa! Where does one shop for these?? There's something about a half-naked hot man swigging beer. Sigh. And lasso me anytime. Repeat. Anytime. I'm standing still. Not moving. Just rope me already.

Ok, staying in Friday night and for some reason, I've read about half naked cowboys, elevator naughties, ice for pleasure, candle wax, nudity etc Is there something going on in Blogland I didn't get a memo about..?

Thanks for the eye candy, Jenna. I suppose you slipped the last pic to bring down our fever a little. Smart.

Jennifer: Hot cowboys make me go yum. I also love the look of cowboy hat, white button shirt (untucked) and jeans. Grrrowf.

Elizabeth: What? You don't like man booby guy? Sigh. he made me swoon. Swoon I say!

Anna & Estella: it was purely my pleasure to sacrifice time to find those hotties for you.

Hey GG! Well, you know, I have a reputation to maintain on the blogosphere and so providing pix of hot half naked cowboys was the least I could do.

A most commendable service. My contribution is to pant after them then. Also very laudable, you might agree :-)

Happy weekend and good luck with that 20k deadline.

Yikes, I stay away for one day and miss all the man flesh! Well, I didn't miss it, it is there for posterity's sake and thank the gods it is.

I loved the cowboys -- and yes, Darragha is correct, sometimes frogs, geeks, nerds and what have you are the best lovers -- but that doesn't mean we can't look at the princes and just imagine. Sigh.

Y'know, some kinds of "heroes" will just never lose their appeal. I've been in love with cowboys since I was about 2!! My first crush was The Cisco Kid... This just reminds me why they're still me favourite heroes!!

"Ride 'em cowboy, INDEED!!!"
