Well, I’m really cross that it has taken me until now to discover that the key to swaggering is …cowboy boots!  Some men can swagger without them, of course, but for some reason women can’t seem to.  In fact, I reckon not many women swagger at all.  What a shame!  I think we need to change that–So girls, it’s time to get yourself some cowboy boots

and start swaggering.  You can feel it doing you good.

There are occasions when only a swaggering entrance–or exit–will do, and a bit of John Fogarty playing in the background is the perfect accompaniment.

Of course, we can’t always control the soundtrack to the seminal moments of our lives, but at least we can have a bit of CCR rolling around in our head.  In fact, I think it might just work better if you are the only one who can hear the music.  Trust me on this.

Yes, I know I’m being self-indulgent here, but sometimes we just have to go where the mood takes us.  What kind of mood is that?  I hear you ask.  Hard to say, really.  Mellow, reflective, and — well– self-indulgent. And why not?… At least you get to listen to some great music with me! (Okay, ‘Boots’ isn’t so great, but ya gotta love Creedence!)           MM
