The Story of Cotton tells interesting facts about cotton.

A bale of cotton makes how many jeans?

Is denim cotton?

Do you know why the cotton gin is important in the making of jeans?

Would you like to see a video clip of young people line dancing to the song and lyrics to “The cotton fields back

home.”?        You’ll start dancing and singing too.  See the end of the Homepage.


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.”

Four Easy Ways to Shrink Your Jeans

A boiling Pot or Cauldron

A.  Way of the bathtub-hot water-sit in it-wear it wet-dry in sun

B.  Way of the boiling pot-hot water-what part?-dip it

C.  Way of the softner spray-mix water-spray the part-dry it outside-sit on the chair

D.  Wash in warm water-dry in hot dryer-watch it!-iron it

These are only temporary.  Caution is advised!  The Stretch Jeans is another way-never use a hot dryer!

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 a review of the product.   

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. 

One of the mule stories has a trailer about Francis the Talking Mule. My dad had a coca cola drinking mule. 

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. 

He, Francis, was just as entertaining as the talking mule movies.  I think of jeans when I remember Francis. 

It was a time before jeans became very popular.   Cowboys wore the jeans. 

Jeans at the time of the mule Francis was around was as mysterious as the boys older than you.  Levi Strauss and Company was well known.

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

The 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.  It is entertainment!   It’s called, ‘Francis the Talking Mule-Trailer

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”!!   The longest story 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.

Ob the trip with my teacher friend, I wanted to speak to her old grandma about the slaves as a subject for my history class.

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

I now know how it must have felt for slaves chopping cotton in the field all day long!

A Quote by LS&Co tells how Levi Stauss in the 1950’s had hired black American women seamstresses at a Levi Strauss Manufacturing Company located in a Southern town.

Strauss 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.


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

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.

Who reads books for searching facts

Since I am a voracious reader and was new in developing a Website, I failed to write down all my sources.  I checked out books at the library as well as researching on the internet.

The Levi Strauss references are based on common knowledge and as such that I only kept many of the information in my head.  There are some, of course, that I remember.  I have attempted to look them up once again.

I want to name some of my sources to generally thank one and all for the great writing that sunk into my old brain.

I am and was in no competition with any Website or Jean Company or the various news agencies where I received information on my search for the 501® Levi® jeans.

The LS&Co is the one who had the most information to give.  I already knew about Levi Strauss, but the particulars were absolutely needed.

The Wiki-how and all the encyclopedias on the Google Search and in the library were a big help also.  Most of my stories were mine originally and the images were mine also.  But, guess I can thank myself.

I am very grateful to a wonderful university where I learned how to build a Website online.

It is Wealthy Affiliate and if anyone out there who would like to earn money at home, I do definitely recommend Wealthy Affiliate and their Program.  You will not get rich fast and they make no claim for that.

I am not making a commission by recommending them, but I just wanted to say that I learned to keep my synapsis in tune (Like an old car) by joining WA.

I taught myself some computer skills, but I will be with Wealthy Affiliate for the rest of my life (not a long one) in order to learn and to communicate all the vocabulary necessary to become an affiliate marketer at best.

I thank Amazon for allowing me to have their product on my Website and being an Associate with them

My thanks
