A lil’ somethin’ for the Cowboys out there…

Santa Fe
By: Randi Rawls

Well I was gittin’ kinda tired — rode the range all day;
Been pushin’ them dogies to Santa Fe.

My ole butt was tired – nearly worn clean out;
And I was needin’ a drink – one tall and stout!

So when we made camp and were all settled in;
I grubbed me some beans, and a good swig of gin.

The coffee was black, and strong enough to walk,
But I was so tired – too tired to talk.

So I doused the fire with my bent coffee tin;
Spread out my roll, and commenced to turn in.

Them cows were a snoozin’ as Cookie harped a note;
And I too drifted off ‘neath my old ragged coat.

When mornin’ rolled ‘round, and the sun came to rise;
I filled up on coffee and fried apple pies.

Cookie hitched the team, while I saddled Ole Hap –
All freelin’ refreshed after our evenin’ nap.

Ole Hap and me been a pair since birth;
And all the gold in Californy couldn’t afford his worth.

He was a mealy colored sorrel that my Pappy give to me;
With white splotches of paint on his rump and front knee.

He could bear down on a stray, and bring him back to the herd;
With just a nudge from my toe and a soft-spoken word.

So Hap and me set out for yet another day;
Not knowin’ the events that would venture our way.

But I was calm in myself, and kinda satisfied knowin’
That I had Ole Hap wherever I was goin’.

We finished that long drive – “Santa Fe or Bust!”
With two pounds of coffee and twenty pounds of dust.

Them other cowpokes hit the tub and then town;
But me and Ole Hap were content to settle down.

Guess I’m gettin’ old – done raised enough hell;
No fun wakin’ up with a hangover in jail.

I reckon me and Ole Hap will retire one day;
When we’ve pushed that lost dogie… to Santa Fe.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM DOUBLE R!

“She took the leap and built her wings on the way down”

Well, here goes the official “leap”!!! 🙂

Beginning this 2017 New Year, I will be changing my main focus to promote Double R and pursue this crazy dream of mine on (nearly) a full-time basis!  Yep  — BIG LEAP!  Being very cautious by nature, I’ve attempted to talk myself out of this decision numerous times.  But for every time I said, “Naaa, I can’t do that… at my age???  What if?”, something would happen — something would “scream at me” to do it… to jump… to leap!  You know you only get one go-round, and I already have enough regrets, so here we go!!  I’ve learned a lot in 2016, and I’m going to do everything I can to get Double R Designs out in the marketplace in 2017.

I have some serious personal hurdles coming my way.  I’ll be undergoing open heart surgery in February for a valve replacement, but I am confident and encouraged that I can “eat that elephant… one bite at a time”!  I appreciate your prayers, and know I am in good hands… His Hands.

I’ll still be at my marketing job on a part-time basis, but stay tuned in for what’s happenin’ at Double R — you never know where we’ll turn up next!

Thank you to my customers and fans for this opportunity, and spread the word!  I’m doing’ it!

I’m “building those wings”!!!!!
