There is no new thing under the sun. - Ecclesiastes, I.9
Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. - Ecclesiastes, I.10
And so I found out when I thought about changing the name of this blog to depersonalize it. I was going to use the following:
But, I thought I'd better check to see if it had been used, and it had. I already knew it, as this is a real common title of a popular western song sung by our third grade class in elementary school in the '30's. I think most of the hillbilly singers have recorded a version of it at one time or another. The named blog is very nice, though, and can be checked out here: www.mausersandmuffins.blogspot.com. A lot of good info on gun-handling and shooting, mostly for women, but men can take advantage of it.
So I moved on to this:
And was going to use it, but it was just too dark, and someone else has probably already used it somewhere. I might add it to the heading if I can figure out how to super-impose it. What the heck is he doin' out there in the middle of the night? I hope he don't get any on his boots.
That left only this:
Spurs! Actually, fake spurs that couldn't be worn even if a person tried. Besides,there is already a blog with Spurs in the name, so that's out. (See spurandlock.blogspot.com)
I could use all three and call it something like "The Cowboy and Spurs at Home on the Range." Don't like it, too long, and besides, I ain't no dern cowpoke, even though I have ridden a horse a couple of times or two. I know what "gee" and "haw" is or was. Do they still use those terms?
Guess we'll have to wait and see if there will be a name change.
