The Calgary Stampede ended last weekend, but Saturday, July 22 is the National Day of the Cowboy. We roped a few vintage cowboy articles from Voices past.
Beef burger meets lobster. Albertan Doug Boyd recounts his encounters with imported Newfoundland culture. “Before he left, I learned many things from my Newfoundland friend. My wife is “the missus.” Last call is just a warning. They will escort us out when it’s time. Laugh loud at every joke.” The Cowboy and the Fisherman, November 3, 2006.
The yellow, yellow cheese of home. Audrey Karperien pines for Alberta while she travels the world. “I should point out that what is called Salisbury steak in Britain is what Albertans would wear around their waist, cinched with a really big silver buckle and carved all over with whooping cowboy curly things.” The Harried Student Appreciates Canada, January 7, 2004.
