Hi all! Just to remind everybody to keep it light, i offer the following: Roy Rogers had just gotten this perfectly gorgeous pair of spiffy Tony Lama cowboy boots. He took 'em off that night before going into the house (Dale was very particular about that kind stuff!) In the morning he hurried out to put on his boots but- they were gone!! He noticed cougar tracks nearby and figured out what must have happened - the cougar smelled the leather and went for 'em. Well, he lost no time - yelled at Dale to tell her what had happened, saddled up and rode off with his rifle in search of the cougar. Late that evening, he returned, with the dead cougar and his new boots, half-eaten, across the saddle. He was just telling one of the ranch hands what had happened, when Dale spotted him and called out, "Pardon me Roy, is that the cat that chewed your new shoes?" apologies ;-) HB
