Deal With The Devil

Ever feel like Hank the Cowdog? Yeah, you think you're teaching those coyotes a thing or two and scaring off stray dogs, but then it hits you like a whack from Sally May's broom -- those coyotes just stole the liver you rescued from Little Alfred's fish hook, that stray dog you scared off was your own reflection, the rats are eating your dog food and, worst of all, Pete the barncat has outsmarted you again.

Then, suppose somebody offers you a different kind of job and all the liver and steak you can eat? If you accept the offer, you will probably leave the ranch behind and have no time for your pursuit to become a truly great Head of Ranch Security.

Deal or no deal?

all my life I have struggled to do what I want to do and I am not giving it up without a knock down dragged out fight.. yeah I am living the dream of a pauper with hardly any material posessions to show off to the Joneses of the world, but when I fire up my writing software I am one happy mutha. To me I do what makes me happy

Nothing wise to add.

But I wanted to mention that your knowledge of and references to Hank the Cowdog make my heart sing.

I'm off to go sing "Rotten Meat." Have a great day.

Hank the Cowdog is the ultimate tool in managing people. Forget the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, just read Hank.

I'd sing along with you but I've never quite figured out the tune to Rotten Meat. Perhaps I should get an audio book.
