Coffeehouse observation No. 358 – Howdy pard’

This doesn’t happen often. Well, I’m not sure that it has ever happened. But a guy just walked in wearing spurs. … And, yes, he was wearing boots, jeans and a shirt, too, not just spurs. It was the spurs that were different for the coffeehouse. And, of course, he left in a pickup with country music blaring and a window sticker reading “Life is short. Ride hard.”
