Yippee- ki-o-ki-a

I saw this sign the day after the advertised event. It cracked me up. I’m totally certain I would have gone. (Yeah, right) Can anybody tell me what Cowboy Mounted Shooting is?? It doesn’t sound remotely safe. About ½ mile before this sign was one advertising a tractor pull. We could even go to a rodeo this weekend. I told you I live in the country!

So Yippee- ki-o-ki-a– here comes Quick Draw McGraw. Does anyone else remember that cartoon? I think that just dated me, big time. Enjoy your weekend.

Glad to hear about Cody!
Oh I would love going to all of those events!

Just call me a country bumpkin! Oh but instead of pink pumps I'll wear pink cowgirl boots!

I loved those carttons didn't it come on with Hulckleberry Hound and Yogi the Bear?

Dating ourselves together!

I'm hooting... (or laughing)! Since we now live out west and actually pastor a church in "The Cowboy Capital of the World"... (the whole town has maybe 300 people - if you count the dogs and cows... and on a GREAT day we have 20 in church and that is a "crowd")
When I think of "Mounted Cowboy Shooting"... I wonder - I can visualize them actually mounting a cowboy and taking turns shooting at him... I know,I have a weird sense of humor...
And yes, I do remember Quick Draw McGraw.
In one town where we lived, they had a farm days festival and in the "parade" - consisting of a fire truck, police car and tractor pulling a wagon - they actually threw SWEET POTATOES at the crowd of 10! Yeah, we had enough sweetpotatoes to make a casserole for Thanksgiving.

All this for a girl who grew up in Atlanta, lived in Dallas, Phoenix, Tulsa and West Palm Beach... major culture shock!

Some of the signs we come across crack me up. I saw one today that said, Fat People are harder to Kidnap! I am not even kidding you. Who thinks up these things? Cute post.

I remember it too. I think it goes something like Yippee- ki-o-ki-a galloping all the way fastest gun in the west.

I am not sure what that sign meant but an idea popped in my head when I read it and I won't say what it was to keep this post G rated.

I went to the "Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association's" website...who'd a every thunk it... and found this description:

Cowboy Mounted Shooting® is a multi-faceted equestrian sport in which contestants compete using two single action revolvers, loaded with blank ammunition specifically manufactured to CMSA standards. Mounted contestants shoot 10 reactionary targets while negotiating a specified course of fire on horseback.

a lot different than what ran thru my head when I saw your sign...

Oh yes I remember Quickdraw with his sidekick Babalouie(sp?) And the other cartoons that went with it including Tooche Turtle and ... "Heavens To Murgatroid" Snagglepuss. Too funny.

Exit stage Right ...
