Cowboy quotes.


Every weekday at noon Smokey watches Gunsmoke, and many days he tells me the most colorful metaphor/simile of the day. Here is a brief sampling.

(to be directed at a person who does not take criticism well) “He’s the kind of man  who wouldn’t even want to know if his hat was on backwards.”

“If your brains were in a mustard seed they would rattle around like a pea in a boxcar.”

Native American to Miss Kitty: “You are a good woman. If you would learn about your mouth, you could be a great woman.”

“I’ll be on him like a big dog on a small bone!”

“Good food is no excuse for bad manners.”

    It was embarrassingly late in my life that I learned “Get out of Dodge” originated with “Gunsmoke.”
