Tonight I got to sing a couple of duets for the Cowboy Church.
I'm not kidding.
There is such a thing as Cowboy Church.
I didn't know it was Cowboy Church when I showed up, but many of the performers were there in boots and spurs and when they prayed the congregation removed their Stetson hats.
They talked about trusting in God, loving America, and believing in the right to bear arms. All in the same breath.
That's Cowboy Church.
And here we thought when we came back to America from China that we were coming back to a monoculture where we'd never experience anything interesting or unusual again. We thought life would be predictable. Boy-billy-ray-cyrus, were we wrong! Show up to sing a couple Christmas songs at a venue, and you've got Cowboy Church instead.
(Wish I'd brought my picture-takin' machine just to prove it to you.)
