My Sister Bobbie told me that I would wear these old ostrich boots out in no time. I still have them. They may not fit anymore but I still have them along with my old bull riding hat.

I was living with her when I broke my neck trying to be a cowboy, I will never forget her and will always love her.

The Monkey statue aka Wall Street Journal was a gift from her back in 1970 I kept it for years.

Rest in Peace Sis God needed another Angel, we just weren't
ready to let you go yet.
