When I was a young man I clearly had indicators of what I wanted to do and what I wanted to become.
My interests were in being:
As it turned out nearly all my interests were fulfilled early on in my life pursuits.
A Zoophilist is a lover of animals.
A Millinophilia is a lover of hat wearing (cowboy hats)
A Cynophilist is a lover of dogs
A Hippophile is a lover of horses
A Bonvineophile is a lover of cows
A Philogyny is a lover of women
A Tony Lama-o-phile- a lover of Tony Lama boots.
I have always loved animals, got my first good hat when I was 15 years old, got a great Blue Heeler when I was 16 years old, got a so-so sorry cow horse when I was 17, went to work on a cattle ranch at 17 years old and found Roz at 20 years old and saved all summer to buy my first pair of Tony Lama’s when I was 16 years old.
These were all early indicators. All the big words just meant I wanted to be a cowboy.
