Cowboy's Guide to Life
Texas Bix Bender’s witty and straightforward cowboy wisdom is collected here for a new generation of cowboys.
“Always drink upstream from the herd.”
“If you’re ridin’ a high horse, there ain’t no way to get down off it gracefully.”
“Sorry looks back. Worry looks around. Faith looks up.”
“If you ain’t pullin’ your weight, you’re pushin’ your luck.”
“Never be too quick to criticize yourself. It’s not fair to all your friends and relatives who are dying to do it for you.”
Originally a Haight-Ashbury shop in the ‘90s, Happy Trails Home was a much beloved American junk shop with vintage housewares and a range of pop culture goods. After a stint as a buyer at Hot Topic and working as a home decor product developer for many years, the owner Gretchen decided to reinvent the shop into what it is today. Not to worry, the shop has the same happy-go-lucky atmosphere and yes, FREE Bazooka bubblegum with every purchase!
