Old Cowboy's Secret to A Long Life

.

A TOUGH OLD COWBOY FROM SOUTH TEXAS COUNSELED HIS GRANDSON THAT IF HE WANTED TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THE SECRET WAS TO SPRINKLE A PINCH OF GUN POWDER ON HIS OATMEAL EVERY MORNING.

THE GRANDSON DID THIS RELIGIOUSLY TO THE AGE OF 103 WHEN HE DIED.

HE LEFT BEHIND 14 CHILDREN; 30 GRANDCHILDREN; 45 GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN; AND 25
GREAT-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

HE ALSO LEFT A 15-FOOT CRATER WHERE THE CREMATORIUM USED TO BE.

Sorta brings a tear to your eye, don’t it?

Sweet Jesus, he saved a lot of other people from being burned dead. That may come in handy when the dead are raised.
