Living the Dream

Published / by paul / Leave a Comment

Have you imagined yourself as the Marlboro Man or the heroine in Little House on the Prairie? Here is your big chance! You can buy a complete western town to star in your own movies. The town features ten period-appropriate buildings, such as a hotel, one private residence, two rental homes that can house up to 22 people, a courthouse that doubles as a movie theater, a sheriff’s office and a fully licensed saloon. For the meager price of $7.5 million you could become the owner of Mellonsfolly Ranch, a Wild West resort town that recently went up for sale in New Zealand. the resort hosts a burgeoning Manuka honey business that in 2019 produced 15.5 tons of honey. Doesn’t sound like a bad deal at all. The concept is the brainchild of cowboy enthusiast John Bedogni, who built it as a tribute to a 1860s Wyoming frontier town. A Wild west Fantasy Island

 

Hi Ho Silver, Away

A cowboy walks into a bar and orders a drink. When the bartender delivers it, the cowboy looks around and notices the bar is completely deserted other than himself and the bartender…
“Where is everybody? This place is usually packed this time of day,” the cowboy says.
The bartender replies, “They’ve gone to the hanging.”
“Hanging? Who are they hanging?”
“Brown Paper Pete,” says the bartender.
“What kind of name is that? Why do they call him Brown Paper Pete?” the cowboy asks.
“Well,” says the bartender, “he wears a brown paper hat, brown paper shirt, brown paper trousers and brown paper shoes.”
“Weird guy,” says the cowboy. “What are they hanging him for?”
“Rustling,” says the bartender.

Lots of violence could have been prevented in the old west
If only cowboy architects had made the towns big enough for everyone.

There are 3 cowboys riding through the desert
They look up and see a tree… and it’s covered with bacon.
One cowboy says, “Hallelujah! We’re saved!” And starts running to the tree.
Out of nowhere, there’s a symphony of gunshots and the cowboy is dead.
The two other cowboys scream. One says to the others, “Run! It’s not a bacon tree, it’s a Hambush!!”
