How will I remember your Website?

Think in pictures!   Listen to this storyWhat would you say if you had only beautiful fashioned shirts but, no jeans


A rack of beautiful dress shirts


“There is a rack from a closet that has beautiful dress shirts in All colors and styles.  But listen, a man is upset.   He shakes his head.

“Oh dear, he laments, the rack of beautiful shirts in my closet but no jeans.” 


The next morning, two men are taking a break and this is the conversation.    

listen in a conversation



Bob:  “Are you ready to add some jeans and accessories to your wardrobe?
For fashion’s sake?”

Wes:   “Is your Website about Button-fly jeans?”

Bob:   “Yes! The title is “501 Levi original and tall & big original fit jeans for men.”

Wes:   “Why Levi jeans? Where can I reach you?”

Bob:   “In 1960, my dad built a big 47-foot cowboy. He had authentic Levi jeans.                                                                                                                          After Levi Strauss made the jeans, they became my passion years later.”

“You can locate me at or email—

A rack of beautiful dress shirtsWait!   Do you hear that sound?  That sounds like a person wanting jeans in a closet that has no jeans!                         (loud sound is heard)         He’s upset and yells,


find me jeans!!****!   


Now, you can remember the name of my Website just by remembering these beautiful shirts in a closet with NO jeans.   


My views and motivations and bits of memory.

Some of the Pages give me a much-needed income.                

Money for the jeans and accessories is the Price.

The Post corner of true stories is personal.                                

Joy for the Posts stories is the reward.

My name is Judy.  Memories seem to capture the essence of who you are.  I have two adult children, grandchildren and a great-granddaughter I have not seen. 

I have been divorced from my second husband and my first husband I assume is dead.  I am a retired school teacher. 

If you like my Website, tell all your friends about  That will be so encouraging.   The more people who read, my reputation will grow and will build people’s trust.                                                                                                  picture of Judy owner of find me jeans website

These stories are important to me.  They are a legacy to my grown adult kids.   

They are important for my readers because I am the last person who was a witness to all my dad’s works including the big cowboy built in 1960. 

I am 74 and the stories are not dated but are the creative endeavors that I discovered about myself.


I think the first Post I would read is about the 47-foot cowboy: the one my dad built by hand.  This story relates to authentic jeans manufactured by Levi Strauss Sewing Manufacturing Company in 1960.  

47 foot statue of a big cowboy hand-built


Then read the Pictorial Exhibit Design.   This exhibit that I built is 8-feet in length and is 48 inches tall.  It is about my dad from the 1930’s until his death in 1997.  (it seems we do things big in Texas) 

This is the right side that folds to the center.The folding right side of the pictorial exhibit

The left is Duo Piano Event and the Band Director Event in my dad’s early life.  The middle part takes place in the 9 years we lived in the small town of Canyon, near Amarillo.

He was creative and built many things. (motel, museum, the cowboy statues, the signs, and some stories about our mule, Francis)

So, please make comments at the end of each story when you read the Post articles.  I would appreciate it.  In fact, I would like people to get in a conversation about what you read on these stories.

One comment alone is helpful for others to write something.

Please, leave your email so that I may contact you later for a new Website or more information.  Let me know if you absolutely do not want any contact.  I will honor that.  You still need the email address, but I will not write anything about you it.   Make sure that is clear in the comment section.

the black and white kittenWell, look here.  Suki, a very intelligent cat is telling me something.  So I have to go for now.

Be sure to write your comments on the stories.  I really would like to know how you felt about them.

the 47-foot cowboy built by Wheeler

The big 47-foot cowboy is standing with his right foot on top of a porch.  He weighed 7 tons.

In 1959, my dad began to build the cowboy.   Well, they do things big in Texas, so the hand-made cowboy was 47-foot tall.

The shirt is a real material.  The jeans are authentic Levi® jeans®!  Do you have questions?

On this story, you can watch a cowboy movie!   The cowboy is a rancher who worked very hard on the range.

Dad had to paint the ‘Stetson’ hat and the face.  Do you know how my dad reached that high?   Do you know how tall the cowboy is?

How to wash your jeans.    That woman is doing her laundry.  How difficult is it to wash your jeans?

She learned by the label and tips from others.

There are ways to do it.  But the best way is to read the label.  The next is to read my Post.

My advice is definitely to turn them inside out first thing.  Just remember hot water and a hot dryer will shrink those jeans.


Right side of pictorial exhibit

The right side and the left side of the Pictorial Exhibit Design fold to the center. It was built in 2015.

Facts about this pictorial exhibit:

A.  It was designed by me, Judy.  It is 8-feet long, and 48 inches tall.  It is considered Dad’s legacy.

B.  It is about my dad, who built the 47-foot cowboy and this exhibit tells more about his life.

C.  It covers the period from 1935 to dad’s death in 1997.

D.  It includes stories, rare pictures,  rare old items, and other surprises.  It is heavier than plywood.

The events are listed horizontally and the details are listed vertically.  You too can create a pictorial exhibit for any purposes.

The Levi Strauss story for Johnnie   is a different type of biography.  Of course, the story about Jacob Davis who was the true inventor of Levi® blue jeans.   Both of them formed a company.

This story is different because it is a two-way conversation between a grandmother and her grandson named Johnnie.

Johnnie’s father wears 501® Levi® original fit jeans and he wants to wear them too when he grows up.

Johnnie listens to his grandma’s stories about Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis and makes his own

comments.  You can tell when Johhnie says something and how grandma answers him.

She shows him pictures and makes it interesting. There are two nights that the story takes place.  “Good night Johnnie.”

The Website is about 501® jeans®.  One fact about denim jeans is that they are 100 % cotton. 

That 100 % cotton weave was made into threads that ended up making the jeans for the 47-foot cowboy;  quality testing at each step of the way.

It was a tall order I, Judy wrote my site thinking about the funny stories and the big cowboy my dad had built. 

He did a lot of varied, things and was a businessman and creative genius just like Levi Strauss.

I made a pictorial exhibit as a legacy to Wheeler and his art.  Both W. H. Wheeler and Levi Strauss were alike: creative and perceptive businessmen.

Connection:    wash > shrink > review > solved > buy or not > accessories >


But what does a visitor want to see when he/she visits a Website like mine?   He wants to learn more about and read reviews of the products.

If he likes the product and thinks he is getting a good deal, the problem of what to do is solved.

He trusts Judy who is giving the product review.  He either will buy or not buy the 501® Levi® original fit jeans (or the tall & big size).

He soon discovers there is a Page called Accessories’  The visitor wants to wear some accessories for the jeans.   You got it!

More than the money, Judy would like everyone to read her stories for entertainmentOne that is appropriate for the 501® jeans® 

I love the mule stories about my Dad’s coke drinking mule he trained in 1954.   He would bray everytime a tourist bought a 10 cent coke from a coca cola machine.  It was on the front porch of the curio shop.   

I think of jeans when I remember Francis.   

Cowboys wore the jeans.  Francis liked the cowboys.

A group of cowboys

Jeans, at the time of the mule Francis, was as mysterious as the boys and girls older than I was.  

Levi Strauss and Company was well known.  Books were written that had the word, “levis”.   It was the right word used in the novels.

Jeans in schools were mostly prohibited.  Except in Texas, many of the small towns allowed young boys to wear jeans.

I take that back: some schools in Texas were opinionated about jeans and how they influenced the young kids.   Even in the 1960’s, I was not allowed to see a movie staring Elvis Presley.

Some country and some city folks had not caught on that the appalling jeans were not dangerous.

I have a link to Francis the talking mule DVD because I know the black and white movies are funny and the visitors will enjoy the

1950’s movie very much.   

These “Francis” movies were famous.  People flocked to see the funny mule talk in his movies. 

The talking movie star, Francis was an example of entertainment.   Some of my writings have nothing to do with jeans, but everything to do with entertainment!

I will now show Francis, Trailer.  Francis in the movie reminded me of “our” Francis.    It is entertainment!

When I was in middle school, I was there for the following events  

It was a time that the teens were independent and rebellious.

It was a time period for tight jeans, bobby socks. Pat Boon, the blues music, 

capri pants for women, Francis, the talking mule stories, and the ads. about the Levi® name and reputation.


I consider Strauss and Davis to be “the man”!!  They reminded me of my dad and his innovative genius and perception.   

The longest Post article I wrote was “Everyone has a story.”  It is about two history teachers taking a trip to one of the teacher’s hometown.  It is a play with two acts and one intermission.

One of the teachers wanted to speak to her old grandma about the slaves as a subject for her history class.

She had never chopped cotton before but soon learned how difficult the job was due to the back bending work and the heat of the Oklahoma sun.

She now knew how it must have felt for slaves chopping cotton in the field all day long!Slaves in a plantation

A Quote by LS&Co tells how Levi Stauss in the early 1960’s had hired black American women seamstresses at a Levi Strauss Manufacturing Company located in a Southern town. in Blackstone, Virginia.  But there were problems.  At the time, Levi Strauss decided to have a sewing factory there. 

The City of Blackstone had thought the Levi Company would have a segregated sewing facility.  They did not consider the women who were told they could not work in that and other factories.   The city gave no thought to a consideration that these women they were being kept from working had families to support.  No, race and other issues would be shared by Levi Strauss company, they thought.

One of the managers doing the negotiations by the name of Tom Harris made it clear to the city planners that the Levi Company would go elsewhere if the city did not comply with the integration policy.

It seems the town needed the income that Levi could provide for the city of Blackstone and Levi Strauss Company prevailed.

Levi Strauss & Co was ahead of their time.

It is an interesting story dealing with an unyielding commitment to integration despite the reactions of fellows after the War and during the 1960’s.

Levi Strauss Company hired the ladies before the civil rights act was passed in 1964 that banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

This statement from www. shows the innovative and creative endeavors to relate to human suffering from the past.  Levi Strauss & Co desegregated their factory before it was “Federally mandated and four years before the civil rights act.”  Read the interesting story.

The Post article, Everyone Has a Story, reminds us that no one was able to free the hard-working slaves, but in modern 1960’s before the civil rights act, Levi Strauss and Company freed the women seamstresses who were slaves by being unable to work due to segregation.


The history teacher was thinking about the slaves in America and Levi Strauss was concerned with another type of slave in modern times.

picture of Judy owner of find me jeans website

A black American woman who could not find work due to prejudice and the slaves in the south before the civil war in the United States were, in my way of thinking, both eventually freed from slavery.  So, put on your jeans®, get out a coke, and read one of my Post stories.
