Kathy and I attended the big opening night festivities at The Scottsdale Museum of the West last Saturday night. This was for the spectacular Edward Curtis photography show they have mounted. Met Curtis's grandson, John Greybill and his wife Coleen. Great people. They are tracking down many of the descendants of the Native Americans Curtis photographed and then photographing them. They call it the Descendants Project.
I also taped some new True West Moments down at the Scottsdale Museum of the West yesterday. Did multiple bits on the massive Abe Hays history collection, including stories on Annie Oakley, Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, Pearl Hart, Pat Garrett, Frank Hamer and the popularity of faro. The director was the talented Steve Enyeart. Here's his view from behind the camera and in front of the faro display case.
Knocked them out in an hour and drove home (another hour!). I am a pro and have been doing this for a long time.
While I was in the Beast, I picked up 250 commemorative postcards printed by JC Printing and I intend to send them to all my passionate friends who love Tombstone history as much as I do. My plan is to have them mailed from Tombstone on October 26 to give it the time stamp which will make it that much more special. Do you think you qualify for one?
If you think you do qualify, send me your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org in the next 24 hours. Going to go fast, and my friend Steve Todd is coming by to pick them up on his way to Tombstone tomorrow night.
