Mammas, Don't let your babies grow to be cowboys.
This was a song from 1976 by Ed Bruce. Two years later it was recorded by Waylon and Willie. The song has been used in many movies and is one almost everyone has heard. The message is that moms should steer their boys to become lawyers and doctors instead of living alone as a cowboy.

I think it's time to change the message. The way I see it, the lack of cowboys and the increase of lawyers has been detrimental to this nation. I think it's time for mamma's to start raising their kids to be cowboys again. You see, cowboys know the difference between right and wrong, selfish and selfless and don't look for the almighty dollar sign over helping a neighbor, friend or stranger.

Be safe and have a great day.

I blame your mother for this new direction! If she hadn't left those darn chaps in the trailer, everything would have been fine. Just kidding, you just need to get home so you can "be a cowboy". Guess Santa needs to bring you a new hat for Christmas!!!!! By the way, I love the slideshow!

Whatever happened to the good guys??

I agree to that!

By the way, I like the pic; the boys are so cute in their cowboy outfit.
