Now you’ll know what an acrostic is

Well, this is the day that so many of you have been waitin’ for, the naming of the winners of the Northeast News “Why I like Horsefeathers” contest. Believe me. I had no idea so m any of you were such creative folks It was not easy, in fact I could hardly make up my mind, so I am givin’ the first place prize, plus five CD’s to the top five places. Sor-ry, I couldn’t give every one of you who entered a CD but I do consider every one of you winners! You are the best folks in the world

Alright already! The winner is (are)…Michael and Jan Gucker of Crosby. Their winning entry was an acrostic using Horsefeathers, vertically. Now, the first time I saw an acrostic, I had to ask what is was, so here is the winning entry:

Honest writing
Outstanding stories
Really Interesting
Super talker
Equine reading
Full of cowboy poetry
Exciting to read
Today’s news
Historical tidbits
Entertaining Tales
Real Cowboy Way
Sensational article

Now that’s a great “acrostic” folks! Thanks to Michael and Jan for their support and to all the rest who sent in entries.

Winners of the autographed CD’s are:
Laura Kidder, Crosby; Joe Hausberger, Sr., Highlands; Janice Koopman. Houston; Ma-vis Jones, Houston: and Betty Jo Wisegerber. Dayton. Thanks!

On to some important happenin’s. I want to wish a happy anniversary to my pards Lindy and Amanda Murf of Crosby. I don’t know how he landed such a pretty gal, but he did and he must be behaving’ himself.

Thanks to Granny Gladys Adcox for her letter and support. Also, Laura Kidder of Crosby for sharin’ her story of a fine Crosby boy, Cody Bennett, who was killed by a drunk driver this Memorial Day.

I don’t even want to get started about drinkin’ and drivin’ cause I think that they should put them in jail for the rest of their natural lives and then ten years after they die. I’ll shut up though.

The lovely and charmin’ ‘Miss Judy” will be movin’ to the Rancho Pequito this week per-manently. We’re building, so she will have a new home and not have to sleep with the horses anymore. I know they’ll miss her, but that’s the breaks!

I’ll be on a short break with my family next week and then flying to Amarillo to teach and perform at the Cal Farley Box’s Ranch along with my friends, Red Steagall, R.W. Hampton, Elmer Kelton, Bob Campbell, Trey Allen and a whole passel of other talented folks,

After we return, I may be getting’ to work with the Baytown Little Theater (they mis-placed the Big Theater) on “Annie Get Your Gun”. It’s a sto-ry about women’s rights and how to train up a man! I will have a very important part. That’s right, I will be collecting tickets and cleanin’ up after the show! So stay tuned for more info.

To quote my ol pard, “Buf-falo Bob”, Hey kids, what time is it?” That’s right, it’s Crosby Fair and Rodeo time, folks. One of the best Fair and Rodeos in three counties is held in Juno every year so don’t you dare miss it! June 12th, 13th, 14’, every night. No Shuttle is needed here, so you can park pretty close.

I got to go shut the gate cause Charlie is feelin’ better and left ‘er open again. Stay cool.

Just a Ridin’, Lloyd
