Unscramble the Blue Letters

I met an actual cowboy, by the way. I asked him, what was it like to actually herd a thousand cattle across hddnuers of miles? How did you do that? And he said, "We have the cobyows stationed at distinct pecals all around." They communicate electronically constantly, and they have protocols and checklists for how they hnadle everything — (Laughter) — from bad weather to emergencies or inoculations for the cattle. Even the cowboys are pit crews now. And it seemed like time that we become that way ourselves.

Even the cowboys are pit crews now. And it seemed like time that we become that way ourselves.
