Paulie Mississippi Posted November 26, 2006 Share Posted November 26, 2006 ira, your comment about kids and their videos... my "western" grandson has an old vhs in his room... he's not quite two yet... and he knows that when his bull riding tape is over, he can push it back in when it pops out and it will start over. I'm not so sure the kid isn't the reincarnation of an old cowboy. His dad's a cowboy who actually works as a ranch hand, but the baby, right from birth, took to cowboy stuff like he was literally born for it. I remember they had an old photograph in the house of a "branding" that some locals and family members had participated in... and the baby, barely able to see, would not stop looking at that picture on the wall. Black and white and dingy compared to all the bright colors and things on tv.So we started letting him watch these old rodeo tapes and one morning his mother hears something from his room... he had climbed out of his crib and pushed the tape into the tv and was sitting watching the bull riding tape!When I baby sit (which I haven't done for over five months now) I know that if he's starting to get fidgety or tired, I pop a western like Silverado or Open Range into the DVD player, and he'll sit there beside me, transfixed... for as long as there are animals on the screen! He's not into the gun fights, he's into the cows and horses! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
