No "cowboy" Christmas I know of!

Despite any political or social differences, I LOVE to see family, as rare as it is anymore for me.

"Black Sheep?"...yeah, I know that, but I don't dwell on it.

I wish I could go see all my family, liberals and all, but I can't. The animals need tending, water chief among these things. I wish I even had a choice, but I don't really.

I wonder sometimes if I will regret all the choices I've made, it's not been easy. I was the one they always said would "fail" in my silly pursuits, and yet we have thrived (thank the Lord).

There has always been an open offer to come here to the ranch for the holidays, though I knew they would never come. It's far too cozy in their city world, and far too uncomfortable here without a neighbor's light 100' feet away. There are too many stars, and too much darkness at night. It's unsettling for them, despite how calming it is to me.

I wish them well, and I love them all, but I am who I am. I will go out and feed and water no matter the cold, wind or snow. The animals, they depend on me, us, and as much as I miss everyone this is what's real. (to me anyway).

If I die, and someday I'm sure I will, I hope it's in a snow-bank, with a rope and a flake of hay in my leather gloved hands.

I will always be true, and I will never give up.

I hear ya, I moved north to the big woods. It's big, dark, quiet..... Wonderful in my book. Yes it gets cold, yes it's hard work, however I wouldn't trade it for anything. I cut my Christmas tree last week alone, listening to the wolves chase deer. Family thinks I'm nuts-but, I loved it. I don't have cattle to depend on me, but I have my boy and wife to feed and keep warm(my girls are older and stayed downstate). My cattle are my trees, i have a mill to feed so i can work(carpenter) spend many days alone in the woods with my saw. Family won't visit - too far, too scary,nothing to do..... But it's home, and as they say, home is where the heart is. I may not be a cowboy like yourself, but I think I catch your drift. Keep tight.

WTF?!!! Are coming here to AK and a dry village? LOL

Forget the Augustus interview. Your blog as you sober up to your liberal views will be epic!!

The phrase "everything you blog can and will be used against you" comes to mind.

Sometimes life can be trying but it's not always as bad as we fear. Try seeing this as a test of character and see if you can't handle the situation with good grace. All this dread and over-thinking things won't do you any good. And remember:

A coward dies a thousand times but the valiant taste death once (to abbreviate and mangle Shakespeare).

Besides, now that your family have you .ing off to a cold ole cabin in the wilderness they've probably booked themselves into a swanky hotel in the sunshine.

Well, soon I will be off on a quest to test even Hercules.

It will be a test of strength character, will, determination, patience and tolerance.

And to see if I can go even 2 hours on the road before having to stop and pee.

Did you remember to turn off the gas?
Lock the front door?
Check all the windows were closed properly?

DB is at that point in life where he can no longer turn off the gas.

I gave him three chances to turn round and go back home - that's his lot.

Turning off his gas is not just an at home problem.

He's has the death sentence on 12 systems because of this.

Couldn't he be plugged into the system and help keep America warm this winter?
