Q&A Questions and Answers:
How does a cowboy feel when he orders a pair of overalls, chilly, thirsty, silly or thoughtful?
I'd say the best choice is chilly, since cowboys will often pull a pair of overalls on for extra warmth. During the dead of winter up here in northern Minnesota, I'll wear a pair of long johns under my jeans and shirt, and a pair of insulated overalls over them. The combination is so warm that while riding at ten below zero I often have to unzip my jacket to keep from sweating too much.
In years past, cowboys found that they could sleep on the ground in winter if they used overalls as extra insulation.
Your warm friend... Cowboy Bob!
