Wyoming Welcomes You

I was going through my picture files for photos to use for my new novel post when I came upon these pictures. I’ve always liked these signs, so, when my daughter and I were returning home from Colorado, this past December, we stopped by the highway so I could take these photos. I think they depict the true picture of a real western frontier that is Wyoming.

This sign is located on I-25 on the border of Wyoming and Colorado.

In my bestest cowgirl speakin’ voice…

So, here you go pards (and pardettes), come on over and visit us here in our beloved state of Wyoming, y’hear? Y’all ‘r welcome anytime. If y’ur comin’ from the north or south direction, mosey on up or down I-25. If y’ur comin’ from the east or west direction, mosey on across I-80. Sounds simple, don’t it? It’s cuz it’s jus' that simple. It sure is.

If y’all decide to come this way, jus' wanna warn you gents to keep a tight rein on yer sweethearts. It’s not uncommon for ladies meetin’ some real handsome cowboys and jus' fall in love with them, right there on the spot. And ladies, jus’ wanna warn ya also that there are some real good-lookin’ cowgirls, too. So If I wuz you, I’d be holdin’ tight onto my sweetheart’s arm the whole time. Jus' kiddin’ y’all ‘bout the last stuff. I’m jus’ tryin’ to infuse a li’l bit of romanticism into this post. I don’t want none of ya to feel scared or anythin’. All in all, we’re jus’ as normal as y’all, or is it jus’ as crazy?

But, don’t take my word for it. Come and experience the wild west yerselves?

The Animal Personality Test

I found this personality test over at Where The Road Takes Us. It definitely characterizes me almost to the "T". I didn't know I'm irrational, though. Oh, wait, would carelessly giving a hitchhiker a ride and angrily riding my bycicle alone to Vedauwoo, a forty-mile ride from Cheyenne, be considered irrational actions?

You Relate to Deer and Pandas

Your Power Animal: Deer

Animal You Were in a Past Life: Panda

You are a fun-seeker - an adventurous, risk-taker.

While you are spontaneous, you are not very rational.
