Actual Phone Conversation Overheard Between Other Half & His Old Friend:

"Whatcha doin'?"

Friend responds.

"Oh man, I need your help working some cows. I gotta take some stitches out."

Friend responds.

"No, it'll be real easy. Just move 'em into the headgate, hold 'em, and take the stitches out. Real easy."

Friend responds.

"Well hell, you know what they say, "It ain't no fun if nobody gets hurt!"

Friend responds.

"Ok, I'll see you in a little bit."

And that's all there was to it. He was on his way. When you can call a buddy to help you work cattle in Texas, in August, and he's in your driveway in a under an hour, friends and neighbors, that's a true friend. Nothing quite siffs through your friends like asking someone to help you work livestock. And friends like this certainly pan out like gold nuggets.

Time and use has worn down the rough patches so these two work together like a well-oiled machine. 

With very little set-up or ceremony the pair settle into a comfortable pace.  They been working cows together for over 35 years.

And now, all these years later, they're still the same cowboys - a lot older, a lot wiser, and a lot more gray hairs, but like a dusty old pair of boots, they just fall into stride together. That's the thing about old friends . . .
