There is a song that is on my mind lately. The time has finally come for me to share it with you. Wish I could have Johnny Cash sing it. However, since I can't do that, here are the words to the song....

Goodbye, Old Paint

Goodbye, old Paint, I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne;
Goodbye, old Paint, I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne.

I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne, I'm off to Montan'
Goodbye, old Paint, I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne;

Old Paint's a good pony, he paces when he can,
Goodbye, old Paint, I'm a-leavin' Cheyenne;

Go hitch up your hosses and give them some hay
And seat yourself by me as long as you may.

My hosses ain't hungry, they won't eat your hay
My wagon is loaded and rolling away.

My foot's in the stirrup, thr reins in my hand,
Good mornin', young lady, my hosses won't stand.

Goodbye, old Paint, I'm a-leaving Cheyenne.

I know how tough this move is on you...leaving so many wonderful friends and your comfy, beautiful home. The good news is that you'll be back in Montana and so much closer to family. Welcome back to Big Sky Country. M-B

I am so confused----

How can you miss me when I am never there?? lol

We will not be leaving for a while but the rumor is true, as soon as the house is gone, we will be as well. I am sure Carin will be posting more but I wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone in Cheyenne for everything. We managed to stay there for longer than we have stayed anywhere in the last 15 years and it has been great!!!


PS- you can blame it all on me-

So, since I read for the kid stuff and the photos - Wyoming works for me! It's all so far away from my world...
