October 15, 2008
We have an exciting visitor today at the True West offices. She is from Sheridan, Wyoming and we are negotiating to preserve her father's photo collection. Very exciting.

Meanwhile, Hugh O'Brian—you know—the Brave-Courageous-And-Bold hero of the 1955-61 TV show "Life And Legend of Wyatt Earp," sent me a very cool photo today:

Quite a legendary quartet. Hugh O'Brian, Charlton Heston, Bob Hope and Jimmy Stewart. Hugh is the last one standing, and although he's in his mid-eighties, he's still a busy guy. He is the founder of HOBY (Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership), organized in 1958. Many thousands of kids have benefited from the program in the last half century, including the daughter of Kingman Junior High School rodeo queen, Jeri (Penrod) Short.

We are finally creating some new T-Shirt designs. I wanted to get these in the works before I left for Peru in August, but we ran out of time. Then, Mickey Free ate up September. But now, two weeks into October, we have a couple designs to sell for the Christmas season.

Gregg Clancy, an oldtime Cave Creeker, took the designs and printed up a couple versions for us all to ponder. We threw them on our staff, went out in the back of the True West World Headquarters and Abby Goodrich snapped off a couple dozen shots. Here's a taste:

This is a shirt design created by Robert Ray: "The Cartridge Family: Earp." Across the top it lists the Earp boys: "Wyatt, Newton, James, Virgil, Morgan, Warren." A very cool shirt for anyone who loves those Earp Boys.

Left to right: Tom Tumus, Allison Cabral (the new girl), Ken Amorosano, Sheri Riley and Sue Lambert. We've got better shots of the shirt designs but I thought this image captured some of the office energy. Yes, the other design is the Billy the Kid. More later.
