4.    The big 47-foot cowboy          postcard of the big cowboy   

My dad, William Harry Wheeler, worked part-time to build a 47-foot cowboy by hand.  His regular job was at the Amarillo Air Force Base.  He started building the cowboy in 1959 to build and finished the big sculpture by 1960. 

The big cowboy built in 1959 and was completed in 1960.  The cowboy was touchable by tourist and kids loved to have their picture on his boot.   

There were many thousands of tourist in those days that took pictures and shopped at the curio shop.   The 47-foot cowboy and the curio shop was well known all over the United States.   

People traveled by car in those days to see the different sites along the way.   

You can watch a cowboy movie documentary to find out the big 47-foot cowboy’s image.  It was about a real cowboy who worked very hard on the cattle range. 

Dad’s cowboy was taking a rest.  He had his right foot on the porch of the curio show we had and was smoking a cigarette. 

Dad sold the business in 1963.  Years of ignorance and neglect ruined the clothes of the cowboy!!  He is still standing due to my dad’s shart attention and genius.

Thankfully, he has been repaired and then painted.

1.    The Pictorial Exhibit Design®                      

I made an 8-foot and 48 inches tall type of plywood to make a pictorial exhibit about all the events in my dad’s varied live.

W.H.Wheeler, builder of the 47-foot cowboy is the person whose life story is on the pictorial exhibit.

Basically, the Pictorial exhibit covers all dad’s events, innovations, and creativity.  It covers the period from the 1930’s to my his death in 1997.

The top horizontal is the events and the vertical part of each event has rare pictures, quotes, stories and other items.

The headings are Duo Pianist; Band Director; Mule trainer; The 47-foot cowboy; the Gunfighter Museum; Designer and maker of hand-made rugs: Piano Teacher; Sculptures.


2.    My Mule Story-Invitation to a Tea Party            an hotel tea room

You get to know about Frances, a male donkey actually but I refer to him as a mule.  This story tells where dad found and tamed the mule.

He also trained the mule to drink cokes from a coca-cola bottle.   We had a coke machine on the porch of our curio shop and Francis would bray to have a coke each time someone bought a coke.

This was in the 1950’s and the stories are a celebration of my memory of the famous jeans, talking Francis movies and the reputation of LS&Co.

Get to know Francis; you will love his antics.  And you will learn to understand mule talk.

3.    My mule story-the unexpected call            reflection of police car light

One night, dad received an unexpected call after midnight from the police.   What happened?

Dad loved his mule and the mule followed dad everywhere.

Dad ran from the house to the curio shop is located where the police were grinning and waiting.

Dad is sweating.   Is Francis hurt?  Find out the funny reason Francis brakes out of his pen.

You will just shake your head and giggle or laugh.

4.    My mule story-a busload of kids                   school bus for students

Once more, Francis is in trouble.  He loves cokes and every time a person goes to the coke machine on the curio shop’s porch, Francis brays loudly.

One day a busload of kids stop at the curio shop; all intent on giving Francis a coke or two!   Francis drinks them all.

See what happens about Francis the next morning.   Dad is unsure what to do.   Does the situation resolve by itself?

5.    Funny stories about the big cowboy          two women laughing

There are stories associated with the big cowboy.   Dad can be seen from the highway working on some project.

One of the stories in this episode includes what questions a tourist asks my dad, Harry Wheeler, about the frame of the cowboy.

The biggest question that many tourists make is to find out what dad is building by hand in front of the curio shop.

Believe it or not, most people think he is building an airplane.

Perhaps you have a question about the 47-foot cowboy.   Please ask in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

6.    10 interesting facts about Denim jeans           button fly jean close-up

This post seems to be everyone’s favorite Post.

The use of Levi commercials and one line of quotes are used here.

Each interesting facts include a short comment about jeans or Levi Strauss or Jacob Davis.

This post is fast-paced and you will enjoy the different parts to ‘the facts about Denim jeans.

7.    Everyone has a story          slaves chopping cotton 

This is a combination of story and a drama play.

It is about two history teachers on a trip together to one of the teacher’s hometown.

They go cotton picking by hand-this is during the 1960’s–

One of the inexperienced teachers did not realize it was so difficult because of the heat and difficulty chopping cotton.

She sweats profusely but empathizes now how the slaves must have felt chopping and picking cotton.

Both teachers decide to have their students do a project concerning the life of slaves.

The picture next to the post, “Everyone has a story.”  is a small picture of slaves in a field.

When you read this post, be sure to enhance the picture.  I wept.

See the women dressed in the long dresses which were worn in those slave days.

The end shows how Levi Strauss and Company gives freedom to the “slaves” of the black American women by hiring them in his sewing manufacturing company.

They do this by hiring black American women BEFORE the civil rights movement.

This is a very long story, but a worthwhile read.   It suggests reading the drama in two parts.   My most difficult work.

8.    Four easy ways to shrink your jeans          clothes line with jeans hanging 

There are quite a few posts about shrinking jeans that I like.  I used this as a reference guide.  Mine includes the 4 typical ways to succeed in shrinking your jeans.

It has neat pictures and of course, I hope you like my writing style.

The 4 ways include the boiling pot; the bathtub, iron and the fabric spray softener.


9.    How to wash your jeans-label and tips              washing machine dials

Again, there are many posts that have covered this posting.

But a woman from the comment section thanked me for showing her really how to wash her jeans.

The reading of labels is important, but the person still needs to be careful.   I give my visitors a variety of choices.

They can choose the clothesline or the dryer, but the subtle directions are stated.

     San Francisco Bay map     10.    Levi Strauss Story for Johnnie.            map of Riga where Davis was born

Johnnie wants his grandma to tell the story about Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis.   Do you remember how your grandma read you a story before bedtime?

Well, Johnnie is about 12 years old and is fascinated with the stories.   He wants to wear the 501® Levi jeans when he grows up.   His father wears 501® Levi original fit jeans for men.

This story includes Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis.   It also speaks about the original discovery of jeans being first in Italy.

You can just hear Johnnie’s comments

11.    The Story of Cotton-Can it be Denim?            look of cotton grass

This site gives many aspects to the story or history of cotton.   It explains the type of weave involved in Denim.  It also gives the history of the two looms

The history is informative and entertaining.  Yes, 100% cotton is denim.

The story of cotton begins with a bale of cotton until the end product becomes jeans.

Do you like History?  This one is a good read then.   Everyone should know the story of jeans, but not everyone likes to read about fact and history.  But like the rest of my posts, each one is meant to be entertaining!!
