Southwestern Woman

Life & Events > Regional Differences

Regional Differences

Regional differences fascinate me. I remember using Southwestern Woman when I started blogging. The Angela Huston character in Lonesome Dove is the very epitome of a southwestern woman. She is by turns, tough and tender and very, very strong. The author nailed it exactly. Here are some characteristics of south western women.

l. She isn't afraid to get dirty and tired.
2. She loves animals and has a great rapport with them.
3. The sun energizes her.
4. Mexican food is manna from heaven.
5. She is familiar with Native American and Hispanic cultures and admires and values both, especially the art.
6. She finds cowboys sexy but realizes they make terrible husbands and seldom marries one.
7. Santa Fe is her spiritual home.

I could go on and on but you get the idea. Do we have another blogger who is a southwestern woman? Yes Laura Emerson fits most of the criteria. She has the best coping skills of any woman I know. I am thinking of the time that she replaced a part in her furnace without help and without ever having done it before.

Do not get the sex cowboy vibe. Even when I was a kid, watching Westerns because I loved horses, I did not fantasize about cowboys. John Wayne, in specific, meh. Maybe it was because male chauvinism was written into the script.

I was talking real life cowboys but I share your disdain for the Duke.

Oh come on Kristy. You are the best animal person I know. I am sure it would translate to horses and cows.

Would like to hear more about any cowboys.

Sam Elliot is a perfect example of an older cow boy, they kind of have to mellow a few years to get that perfect cowboy look. Most of them are great dancers but lack a lot in the conversational areas. All of them wear Stetsons and cowboy boots. For almost all occasions.

I think cowboys are cuter than a bug's ear, but I have enough real cowboy cousins to know I would not have done well married to one.

No, you are gifted with common sense.
