Tough Enough to Wear Pink

Saturday, Dec 22

It’s Saturday, but here I am. I wanted to tell you about ‘pink’ night at the National Finals Rodeo. Practically every competitor wore a pink shirt–and one man, the head of Wrangler, actually dyed his mustache pink! One cowboy wore pink chaps (this is pronounced ‘shaps‘, by the way). Why all the pink? Because of breast cancer awareness.

Thus the slogan, “Tough Enough to Wear Pink”. Nobody, my friends, is tougher than a bull or bronc rider. But there they were, wearing cotton-candy colors. It did my heart good to see that kind of caring and support for such an important cause.

And some people wonder why I love cowboys.

Go figure.
