My Best Friend


My cowboy and I have an odd marriage. We are everything to each other: business partners, boss and hired man, husband and wife, sweethearts and lovers, and (best of all) best friends.

Some times my business partner makes rash decisions with out my input and drives me crazy but I admire my boss's ability with cattle. Some times I hate my boss but my husband is a good guy. Some times I'm mad at my husband but that doesn't mean I'm not going to go to the branding with my best friend . . .  you get the picture.

It's our way of dealing with being together 24/7 and working cows which can be frustrating for anyone, never mind a husband and wife doing it together. It might be a unique strategy but it's worked for over 30 years, for us.

Today I had to go to town for supplies and a few groceries while my cowboy had to stay home and work. I missed him the whole time.

I worked for a few years side by side with my husband too; it all worked out rather well and we made a good team. He's my best friend too! Wouldn't have it any other way. He's working out of town now and it's getting kinda lonesome...

Doesn't sound strange to me , actually its pretty near perfect cause it works for you.

Very sweet. If it's lasted over 30 years, I think it's a good strategy! My hubby's my best friend too.

That's awesome! People like you guys give me hope! It seems like now days more and more people get divorced and don't marry for the right reasons. I LOVE when people do!
