I have a cheap straw cowboy hat that I wear when cutting the grass. It keeps the sun off my neck and makes me feel like a cowboy. At least until this past weekend.

I was getting ready to go out and mow the front yard when Doodle saw me put the hat on. She very enthusiastically said, “E-I-E-I-O, daddy!”. Needless to say, I didn’t feel quite so much like a cowboy any longer.
