The Cowboy Way

Is it the green of the grass or the warmth of the sun?
The freedom he feels when he can just run?
Or the sounds of his family, the music of laughter
that tickles his fancy? Is that what he’s after?
The joy he exudes when brothers play ball
Tears and then laughter when one of them falls
He’ll often be seen, his tongue tasting air
 settled on the stoop, pondering there
What is he thinking, what treats are in store
for this legend in training, this blessing and more?
As Grammy, I’d tell you, “he’s deep like his roots”
But honestly his passion is only his BOOTS!

Hi everyone! Welcome to 50 Shades of Gray Hair. 50 Shades is my blog of life over the hill, where each day is full of delicious opportunities to earn another gray hair. I stopped declaring war on the gray when I began this blog years ago. Instead, I embrace and celebrate them along with whatever life decides to throw my way, with (sarcasm forward) humor and an optimistic eye to the future. I think. I hope? I don't know. At any's real, it's honest, it's full of 4 letter words, and it's me...on a platter. I sincerely welcome you all to my porch....♥♥Rhonda

  1. Go get ’em cowboy! I LOVE when kids go through these phases of expressing themselves in such a fun, cute, bold, whatever way..they are so pure and true to what they like and want without worry of filter for what anybody else might think. glorious! My son went through a phase where he HAD to wear his batman costume and cape everywhere..this went on for months, and I absolutely loved going to the store or out to dinner with my very own super hero. It was a bummer when we moved past that little phase! Rock on lil’ cowboy!!


    1. That is so TRUE! And I love that B was a caped crusader! My little cowboy will soon grow out of these, but little does his Mommy know (who is anxious for this to occur)…grammy has a plan to make sure pair number 2 is waiting in case his head is not where his feet are!


          1. Well, I think she will look back on it and see it as pretty darn adorable! Buy the next size..have ’em ready!
            Let Operation Cowboy commence!


Nice-n-Easy...but tell it like it is
