A mans got to have a code, a creed to live by, I wont be wronged, I wont be insulted, and I wont be laid a hand on. I dont do these things to other people and I expect the same from them. Dad always was glad that he got to stick around longer, and wanted to hang around as long as he was healthy and not a bother to anyone.
The Ol Cowboy has rode away. We love you Dad!
