One most often learns by doing. And one usually does one's best under adversity. And paradoxically, one manages to do fairly well even when he doesn't know what he's doing. Which is why he will get where he's going.

Welcome to Texas. You are obviously Texas material, even with that taint of liberalism. Might you ask yourself why there is no Texas income tax? After all it's liberals, not Texans, who just love spending other peoples money.

We live in Midland, on the high dessert plains, where you can watch a G5 landing next to an oil well where a horse wearing a Texas double rig is tied to it. When we tire of the open vista, we go to our lake house in Kingsland in the Texas hill country, where the Colorado and the Lano rivers converge into Lake LBJ, about 50 miles northwest of Austin. It's only 266 miles (428 kilometers).

Again, welcome.


Re: Cowboys

The Texas saddle to which you refer is called a double rig or Texas rig; i.e., it evolved after many cowboys were killed by roping wild longhorn steers, expecting one cinch to hold the saddle in place. Single rig saddles could not hold a wild longhorn steer. With a double rig he might pull your horse over, but he won't turn your saddle sideways or run away with it. The second (back cinch) was cinched loose when not working longhorns.
