YOUNG JACK:

((still using the megaphone))

Alright, as I see it, we have over 7,000 sheep waiting to go up on Brokeback Mountain. Here's a clue: they won't all fit!!! Some of them are going to have to stay here.

((Waits to see if any of the sheep back down.))

((Jack and Ennis are heading up the mountain with the 1,000 sheep.  They stop to rest while Jack pulls a thorn out of one of the sheep, Ennis is smoking a cigarette and petting the blue heeler))


%% Wow, look a' the countryside. I wonder if he'd been up 'ere with someone else last summer.  Who kep' the camp?  Who shot the Ky-otes?  Why do I care? %%


Hey bud, when you're ready there, maybe we should start putting up our camp..gonna be dusk soon,  we gonna need our sleep.


%% Need our sleep??? I jes' turned into my ma.%%

YOUNG JACK:

%% Well at least most of the sheep backed down. There were at least 800 in that last picture. We have a managable flock now. %%

((nods to Ennis, serious again))

You're right about that one. It'll be night soon. Cools down a lot. Well, if you set up the fire, I guess I can gather water.

((looks around to make sure the sheep are pasturing safely.))

So what's on the menu for tonight? ((grin))

Thank God they are safely up there now!!  Phew!

Dumb-ass mule:


** Here I am again, still standing about. Getting to look at that Jack, though, doin’ his sheep-tending and sheep-hauling. Really looking at ‘im, now. Those sheep’s in luck. He’s a bag of oats and all that. Wonder if Ennis sees it.  If I wasn’t just a dumb-ass mule, I swear……. I’ve been getting loads of inspiration to bray up this here storm on Jack’s behalf. If Ennis only knew!

I’ll never be your beast of burden
My back is broke, my heart’s a-hurting
All I want is for you to make love to me

I’ll never be your beast of burden
I’ve walked for miles my feet sure hurting
All I want is for you to make love to me

Ain’t hard enough?
Ain’t I rough enough?
Ain’t I rich enough?
You’re not blind, so I’ll make you see!

I’ll never be your beast of burden
You’ll raise the tent, I’ll draw the curtains
I’ll let the harmonica say
Come on baby, make sweet love to me………



I bet I’ll make it to the Signal “Annual Music Mules” finals with that one. I can’t wait!

Brayyyyy-haw!! **

Ennis?! What the hell are you doin' to that animal? Just let it be!

"The Ascent of the Mountain has begun!  Blessed be Brokeback!  Blessed be Our Boys!  For thus it is written by Annie the Author Almighty:

Ennis and Jack, the dogs, horses and mules, a thousand ewes and their lambs flowed up the trail like dirty water through the timber and out above the tree line into the great flowery meadows and the coursing, endless wind...

YEEHAW

(( Jack and Ennis are chopping wood, bringing water, setting up campfire and stealing glances at each))

I'm real glad that little sheep you was carryin' was ok, she is my favorite.  I'll call her MIlli.
So I'm gonna start cooking up some weiners and beans if that's allright with you.   Haven't had beans in a long while.


%% Ok, dumbass, why would he care when you had beans? Wonder if he's goin to tend the sheep tonight or the morinin'?  hmmmm.%%
