What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Tim From Security

12 Comments

In these strange days, we are all finding ourselves pressed into service doing unexpected things. So when Oklahoma’s National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum asked their head of security, Tim, to take over the museum’s social media accounts until they were able to reopen, he gamely took it in stride. Tim, while not particularly internet savvy, is pure salt of the earth, and his efforts have positively broken the internet with their genuine adorableness.

His observations about the museum and life in general have such a likeable charm, there’s no way not to root for Tim. If the museum knows what’s good for them, they’ll leave their folksy hero in charge of their social media for good.

“Walking through the Dorothea Lange Exhibition and this photo caught my eye. It’s called Man with Cap from 1934. Doesn’t he kind of look like that kid from that movie The Notebook? Tina, my wife, made me watch it. Thanks, Tim.”

You can follow Tim’s awesomeness on the museum’s Twitter and Instagram accounts, and you can learn more about the actual museum on their website.

  2. Aren’t these great? I saw them yesterday and enjoyed them. Hoping Tim gets to keep this job once things go back to normal.

  3. If there was ever a cowboy fan it was my late Dad. Even at the age of 94-96 he was still watching cowboy movies on the TV.

  4. This brings back great memories with all of the John Wayne movies. I did my best to never miss a “The Long Ranger” and his faithful side kick Tonto. Gene Audrey, Roy Rogers, and so many more. Yes, I love western movies. Where would we be today without them. There are still cowboys rounding up the cattle on the cattle ranches that feed us.

    I left out Cisco Kid. He was special.

  5. He’s hilarious! Whether he is genuinely a bit ill at ease with social media or it is all part of a schtick, I don’t even care. Tim most definitely deserves a bonus as I am sure I am not the only one thinking I need to visit that museum some time.
