Join Us at WESA

David Morgan is attending the January WESA (Western and English Sales Association) convention in Denver, CO.  The Denver WESA Market is the premier trade show for the western industry.  For 90 years, WESA has brought together retailers and exhibitors in a friendly, down-home environment. 

 

Join us if you happen to be at the show!

 

One friend that we’ve made from our years at WESA is Tom Mosher. Tom is a writer of western poetry. His latest poem includes Akubra hats, so we thought we’d post it. Enjoy!

 

 

 

THE TRUE MEASURE

“Of a cowboys treasure”

HIS BOOTS WERE COMFORTABLY OLD

WHY THEY’D TWICE BEEN RESOLED

THEY WERE SPECIAL MADE FROM DOWN TUCSON WAY

HE ALWAYS WENT FOR QUALITY, HE WOULD SAY

 

THERE WERE SEVERAL FINE HATS, HUNG ON HIS RACK

HIS FAVORITE CAME FROM AUSTRALIA, A AKUBRA – KIANDRA IN BLACK

THAT OLD HAT SHOWED YEARS OF USE

NOTHING HE OWNED SHOWED ABUSE

 

NOW THIS COWBOY HAD MORE TO TREASURE

TWO WELL WORN SADDLES, THAT GAVE HIM PLEASURE

AND THERE WAS A LOADED FORD PICK-EM UP TRUCK

TWAS NICE TO HAVE A RIDE THAT DIDN’T BUCK

 

BUT OF ALL THOSE WORLDY TREASURES

THERES ONLY TWO THAT TRULY MEASURES

HIS RED-HEADED LADY AND A STRAWBERRY ROAN

FOR WITH OUT THEM, HE WOULD TRULY BE ALONE
