A Wife Finds A Loophole For Her Husband’s Greedy Dying Wish

Author: Kristy

Maya Angelou once poignantly said: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Many of us strive for this. We do good, moral, and upright things because we want to leave a positive legacy in our wake.

Unfortunately, not all of us feel this way. Some people give in to their more selfish emotions, wanting to enjoy their lives on their own terms regardless of how it affects others, and one of the most common ways people do this is by succumbing to greed.

One widow, in a story that has haunted me for years, was nothing like her late spouse. Her husband was a man who worked very hard for his money and felt that because he did, he deserved to keep it all to himself. Guided by this kind of moral compass, he also expected his honorable wife put her morals on the line to grant him a dying wish. At the funeral of her husband, however, she figured out a way of keeping her integrity while granting his wish, and the idea is nothing short of brilliant…


“There was a man who had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money.

He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, ‘Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the after life.’

So he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died she would put all the money in the casket with him. When one day he died.”

“He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to their best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, ‘Wait a minute!’

She had a shoebox with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket and rolled it away.”


“Her friend said, ‘I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.’

She said, ‘Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him.’


‘You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?’

‘I sure did,’ said the wife. ‘I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.’ ”

TOTALLY AWESOME STOCK SHOW FASHION OF THE 80S AND 90S- SHRED FROM rANCH hoUSE dESIGNS

Author: Kristy

Ahh, who doesn’t love the 80s and 90s? M.C. Hammer, Debbie Gibson, and Kirk Steirwalt in white tennis shoes while fitting the champion steer at Denver. Yes, I’m a true child of the 80s and 90s and my stock show pictures prove it. Here are 9 totally awesome stock show fashion trends of the 80s and 90s.

1. Colored Tennis Shoes

Speaking of those white tennis shoes. Actually this was quite the trend back in the day. Bobby Maddox, Kirk Stierwalt, Russ Harkema – all the major fitters can be spotted in show steer pictures of this era sporting tight Wranglers jeans, tight t-shirts, and colored tennis shoes.

reebok-freestyle

Colored-Shoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here I am pictured winning Champion Brahman Heifer at San Antonio and for some awful reason my dad allowed me to show in RED REEBOK HIGH TOPS!!! Thank goodness my friend who was also in the picture was sporting her high tops too.

Colored Reebok’s eventually segued to the now extinct Ellesse shoes that were like a combination of tennis shoes and hiking boots, which probably eventually led to Doc Martins, and thankfully now we are back to boots!

Ellesse

 

 

 

 

 

 2. 5 Pocket Boys Wranglers on Girls

Now let’s keep in mind, I began showing in 1987, and Rocky Mountain Jeans didn’t hit the market until 1990. So for young girls showing livestock, Boys Wranglers were about the only option. I distinctly remember going to our local western wear store and buying the Cowboy Cut jeans. I also remember them to be fairly uncomfortable. But, I had several pair and proudly wore them to all shows.

5-Pocket-Wranglers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now along those lines, I spotted quite a livestock show trendsetter sporting 5 pocket wranglers not to long ago at Denver…

Christy-Wranglers

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, that is the lovely Christy Collins winning Champion Red Angus at Denver 2012 in some 5 pocket Wranglers. And to that I say – “YOU GO CHRISTY!” If I can get myself back down to a nice weight before Denver, I just might try this myself. Classy western wear never goes out of style!

Which brings me to Totally Awesome Stock Show Fashion of the 80s and 90s item #3….

3. Colored Rocky Mountain Jeans

As previously stated, the now out-of-business Rocky Mountain Jeans brand hit the shelves in 1990. Again, I remember this fashion moment well. My aunt Jan Powell was a really high tone nationally famous barrel racer at the time. She returned from one of her national barrel racing trips with a pair of size 0 Rocky Mountain Jeans for me to try to wear. (I was 11 at the time…haven’t been a size 0 or anywhere close to it for quite a while!) She just had the new cool thing and was giving me a pair to show in.

That original pair were just regular blue jeans, but as the jeans got more and more popular, I proceeded to have nearly every color made. As evidenced by my show photos….

Here they are in green…

Green-Rockies

In purple…..

Purple-Rockies

In Blue….

TUrquoise-Rockies

In Red…..

REd-Rockies

And my personal favorite…..

HOT PINK!

Hot-Pink-Rockies

That picture was me and one of my best show friends Brandy Barnes, and we both happened to win champion heifer that day (she had red Brahman, I had grey Brahman) while sporting our nearly identical hot pink Rockies.

As time went on, if you were REALLY cool, you also had Lawman jeans. Which were like a lot sexier than Rockies.

Lawman-Jeans

But no 80s and 90s stock show outfit was completed without my next item…

4. The Bright Colored Polo Shirt

Bright-Shirts

Again, these were boys shirts. I had several that luckily I got to wear for many years, as also shown in my matching colored jeans pictures from above. While this fashion item prevailed in the 80s and 90s, current trendsetters like Jake Bloomberg still bust out their bright colored shirts – this is one item that never goes out of style.

Jake-ColoredShirt

5. Acid Washed Jeans

Thanks to shows like Saved by the Bell and Beverly Hills 90201, acid washed jeans were a huge hit on the fashion mainstream of the 80s and 90s, so it’s no suprise that trend carried over to the stock show crowd. Here’s a backdrop photo of me showing in 1990, proudly sporting my acid washed jeans. And notice my sister beside me, also wearing acid washed jeans. And notice our longtime stock show BFF, Ryan Rash, pictured on the right, also sporting some awesome acid washed jeans. Please — let’s bring this one back!

Acid-Washed

6. Aztec Shirts / Flame Shirts / and Brush Poppers

What show kid of the 80s and 90s didn’t have a shirt from at least one of these categories?

Here is a picture from 1994 where both the queen and princess were sporting Aztec shirts, and my cousin had on a killer Aztech shirt too!

Aztec-shirts

If you were a guy – the Brooks and Dunn flame shirts were wildly popular.

Brooks-And-Dunn-FLame

As were the Wrangler “Brush Popper” shirts, which I can’t quite remember but had some kind of special water-resistant material right?

Brush-Popper-Shirt

Oh, and once again, here’s Jake still sporting the Aztec look….

Aztec-Shirt-Jake

7. Fringe

Fringe shirts, fringe on your jeans, and fringe jackets were also really popular. I remember having this fringe leather collar kinda thing that had velcro on it that you could stick on over your shirt. Mine also had conchos. I actually wore it at Houston. Ahh, fringe. So awesome.

Fringe

My fringe leather collar thing looked like this. And boy was I cool.

Leather-Fringe-Collar

8. Giant Belt Buckles

Another staple of the 80s and 90s fashion. Anyone who showed in Texas at the Belt Buckle Bonanza in the early 1990s probably has one of these gigantic silver plates. I know I do. And I proudly wore it for several years.

Giant-Belt-Buckle

9. Satin Jackets

Again, these things were awesome. The satin jacket with the striped sleeves, collar and waistband. You just don’t get much cooler than that. Pictured with me in this photo is Johnny Joyce, who was a legendary cattle promoter and Brahman marketer of the time. That look just has “COOL” written all over it.

Satin-Jacket-JohnnyJoyce

And my favorite picture which I saved for last…ME in 1983, sporting this look that both myself and Barbara Mandrell could pull off…..5 pocket wranglers, pearl snap shirt, bandana around my neck, leather belt with R-A-C-H-E-L on the back, and custom embroidered satin jacket with V8 Ranch proudly sewn across the back.  Geez, you just can’t get much better than that for 80s stock show fashion. I seriously need to re-create this look and picture.

 

Satin-Jacket-Rachel

Were you a showman of the 80s and 90s? What were your favorite fashion items?
