The Old Cowboy's Regret

Broken Window in Hayloft, Deeth, Nevada
After I interviewed the old cowboy, I gave him a copy of my book. He turned it in his hands and said,

"I do my job just fine without knowin' how to read. My horse don't care. My truck don't care and neither does the boss. 

"Thing I wish, though, when I get a chance to eat at a cafe, well, I just ask 'What's your best burger?' or 'how's the cook do a grilled cheese?'

"It might be kinda fun -- hell, it'd be a real kick in the head to order off the menu."

Comments: Adult literacy is one of my passions. I spent the better part of a year teaching a man to read so that he could read bedtime stories to his first grandchild.
