The Law in Hardyville

Just because.

It came up in comments the other day and it’s always been a favorite of mine among Hardyville columns. This was a collaboration between ex-Significant Sweetie Charles Curley and me, concocted during some interminable car trip across Wyoming. (All car trips across Wyoming are interminable, which is one reason I’m not there any more.) I love the “credit” Charles gave himself at the end.

Besides, it’s just a Good Idea.

    And God saw that it was good, and he said “Yeeaah! The world is in good hands.”

    I always loved that one.

    And also got a big kick out of Charles Curley’s unique disclaimer.

    Wonderful blast from the past! And I hope that the promise of the return of Hardyville is a new addition and not just part of the past original post.

    I recently handed a copy of Hardyville Tales to a friend of mine, of the more conservative persuasion (another Wyomingite). He said it was a wonderful book so you have a new admirer. I think it is the most effective book you have written, because it is so accessible to so many diverse folks.

    Charles is a mutual friend. Next time you get up to Lincoln City or Hillsboro, give me a holler. 🙂

    Damn how I wish I had a court document declaring I’m not a lawyer. As we all know, when the Statist takeover the first up against the wall will be the lawyers. I for one would like to have proof to the contrary.

    Those of us who choose to living in Wyoming like our interminable drives; we find them relaxing. Life here is more about the journey than the destination. It’s sure not for everyone.

    Yeah Chris, the long drive is one of the advantages here… otherwise, you’d have to live far too close to a bunch of strangers!! It’s all those strangers that mess up a whole lot of other places.

    Luckily, nobody is ever going to mistake me for any kind of lawyer… LOL
