After a long day in the saddle, the line shack was home to the lonely cowboy of the 1800's. On long winter evenings he might make a trinket to give his town girl next spring, or maybe just to leave a comment for the next cowboy.
My favorite example of that was a message stamped into a rusty piece of tin that had been nailed to a fence post.
