I love the coloring on these old postcards. Pink cowboy shirts? In 1907?

Ha! Maybe it's an Easter roundup!

I'm wondering what grammar has to do with the round-up! It would be interesting to know the context of this message.

I'm wondering too, if the new cowboy isn't going back to honor his teaching contract so he's turning the job over to another? Or is he jilting his girl and leaving her to a life of spinsterhood and teaching school while he rides the range with his new cowboy friends? git a long little doggie . . .
