How Lariats Are Made

Some Interesting News...



The Billings Gazette (Billings, Montana) has an interesting article: "King's Saddlery Knows the Ropes." It's about King's Saddlery and King Ropes in Sheridan, Wyoming, and it describes the process of making a fine lariat. I think you'll enjoy the article if you're interested in western history and lore.

Thanks to Sarpy Sam at Thoughts from the Middle of Nowhere for posting the link.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
