Cowboy.jpg
An old cowboy was riding his trusty horse followed by his faithful dog along an
Unfamiliar road. The cowboy was enjoying the new scenery, when he suddenly
Remembered dying, and realized the dog beside him had been dead for years, as
Had his horse. Confused, he wondered what was happening, and where the trail
Was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall that looked like fine marble.
At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch topped by a golden letter
"H" that glowed in the sunlight

Standing before it, he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like
Mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like gold.

He rode toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.
Parched and tired out by his journey, he called out, 'Excuse me, where are we?'

'This is Heaven, sir,' the man answered.

'Wow! Would you happen to have some water?' the man asked.

'Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up.'

As the gate began to open, the cowboy asked, 'Can I bring my partners, too?'

'I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets.'

The cowboy thought for a moment, then turned back to the road and
Continued riding, his dog trotting by his side.

After another long ride, at the top of another hill, he came to a dirt road
Leading through a ranch gate that looked as if it had never been closed.
As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree
And reading a book.

'Excuse me,' he called to the man. 'Do you have any water?'

'Sure, there's a pump right over there. Help yourself.'

'How about my friends here?' the traveler gestured to the dog and his horse.

'Of course! They look thirsty, too,' said the man.

The trio went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned
Hand pump with buckets beside it. The traveler filled a cup and the buckets
With wonderfully cool water and took a long drink, as did his horse and dog.

When they were full, he walked back to the man who was still standing
By the tree. 'What do you call this place?' the traveler asked.

'This is Heaven,' he answered.

'That's confusing,' the traveler said. 'The man down the road said that was
Heaven, too.'

'Oh, you mean the place with the glitzy, gold street and fake pearly gates?
That's hell.'

'Doesn't it make you angry when they use your name like that?'

'Not at all. Actually, we're happy they screen out the folks who would leave
Their best friends behind.'

All the old cowboys I know would grab the inside seat on the pick up so they wouldn't have to get out to open the gate....

After bein' the youngest and havin' to ride in the back of the pickup for years and jumpin' in and out to open the gates everday whilst they is growin' up, a few bits of wisdom kinda seeps in under their Stetsons.

I kin think of one little trip we took about ever other day that included 13 gates. A feller learns a trick or two as he gits a little older or he goes to town and gits a real job.:cool:
