Welcome to the West as I see it

Within these pages, you will find the end result of a lot of living and laughing, finally put between book covers to share with the world. A laugh is never a better laugh than when it can be shared and shared again.

I hope you choose to own a copy of my book, Cowgirl Sass and Savvy. It is a selection of some of the first stories individually published in a syndicated column by the same name that I have written weekly since 2002. They offer you a peek into ranch and cowboy life that isn't what you see as you drive by or what you read in the glossy slick magazines selling cowboy clothes, furniture and adventures.

And most of all, I hope the stories bring you, at the very least, a smile and a good laugh. No better gift could I offer you.

I also offer you a glimpse of this rural area as I see it through my camera lens. Shop the Mercantile page for posters that I have combined my photography with words I have written. Also there are calendars showcasing some of my favorite photos from this year. A link to my landscape photography website will let you browse through what I see when I travel down the dirt roads of the West.

GTT for TGD and home again

Filed under: General — Julie Carter @ 9:44 pm

My son Lane and I made a quick trip to central Texas for the Thanksgiving holiday (GTT for TGD is Gone to Texas for Thanksgiving Dinner)–spending it with friends. The food was bountiful, beautiful and fattening (I’m in a 12-step recovery program now that includes lettuce leaves and clear broth) but the company the best.

It rained most the time we were there, and while it was not a peak time for seeing the sites, or waddling to the arena to rope, Lane did get the chance to catch a few fish. He was delighted.


and now….stay tuned for the next season …



  1. Sounds like a great trip, Julie.
    Hey, I like that painting very much. Did you do it?
