Can you hum a tune or sing the song, cotton fields back home?

Everyone knows the song: In the cotton fields back home. 

“When I was a little bitty baby my momma would rock me in the cradle. 

In them old cotton fields back home.”

 The last verse goes like this.

“It was down in Louisiana Just about a mile from Texarkana,   

In old cotton fields back home!

Brown donkeyFrancis had an Invitation to a Tea Party at a fancy hotel downtown

Can you imagine a mule going to a fancy hotel to attend a tea party given by a group of elderly ladies?

laughing togetherFunny Stories About the Cowboy

There are many funny stories that was told to me or that I was present at the time.  Tourists saw the cowboy and thought he was a plane.

I was given stilts and was ready to run.  The cowboy’s shirt was made in a gymnasium, but it ended up too small.  Dad did not tell them.  He did not want to hurt their feelings.   They were so excited to help.

I have pictures that will put a smile on your face.  Do you want a cure?  Try on a laugh.

motto and play
My friends,  this is a long entertaining play that I wrote.  You may need to divide your time in reading it or you may want to read to the end.    I have an intermission.  If you would like to stop there or at any time and go to my other posts or pages, please do so.
The purpose of this play that I wrote is to entertain and to bring you “close” to a company I have loved since the 1960’s because Levi Strauss & Co. fitted my dad’s 47- foot cowboy with their 501 original jeans.   ENJOY THE PLAY.
