This image of a Texas Ranger has always intrigued me, especially the placement of his knife worn next to the reversed pistol.

Meanwhile, here are three other guys who agree with me:

Got up to (yawn) another stunning sunrise this morning.
Another yawner over Ratcliff Ridge
Lots of talk around here about "The Irishman." I almost gave up on it after the first hour (it's three-and-a-half hours long!), but, ultimately, I was glad I stayed with it. I agree with these wise guys:
"Joe Pesci is a revelation. He's lost the strut and the shtick that use to define his performances, and does everything with his sad, watchful eyes and his lovely, walnut-shell face. When he and Robert De Niro are onscreen together, you believe in the power of art."

Regarding the Texas ranger photo: the pistol holster and knife position is a yawner. What interested me was the Winchester carried with the butt forward. Not only is it awkward to access will snag brush and likely interfere with reining. I can tell you that it's awkward no matter where you hang it : It's a straight piece if iron that don't fit right anywhere on a horse.ReplyDelete
