October 23, 2008 Bonus Blog Post

Feedback From The BBB Blogzone
"Dear Mr. BBB, I haven't corresponded with you since you had the heart attack but I'm certainly glad that you survived. Just got around to reading the August issue of TW. As usual, I'm way behind in my reading material. The article about Tom Horn stated that Capt. Emmett Crawford was killed by Apaches. According to everything else that I've read about Crawford, he was shot in the head by Mexican irregulars made up mostly of an Indian tribe that were hated by the Apaches. As I recall, Crawford had Apache scouts with him on the expedition. You should start eating something besides rabbit food. You look like death warmed over."

Yes, you are correct. the Crawford bit got by our proof readers and me. Also, it wasn't the rabbit food, it was the two heart attacks that created my current look.

"Your gun spinning story was great! You did the right thing. I'm proud of you for seeing it the way you did. I never was a spinner but I sure loved wearing a gun so you brought back a pile of memories. Will I be able to purchase a DVD of this event and other stories done for History? I have one DVD now of earlier clips.

"When is that show going to be on the History channel? I hope they show the whole thing! I bet it's a hoot! I'd love to see you spinning those Colts! I bet it was a sight to behold! Ha!

"Dignity, you say? This ought to be good."

Yes, I'm sure the History Channel will sell DVDs of the show, which will be a six-part series to be called "Real Cowboys." It's not scheduled for airing yet, but I'd give it a month or two. Watch for it.

“Hey Pard: I am a two-degreed historian and a reenactor. I can't be one without the other. The water's fine--just walk into the light (mixing of metaphors brought to you by River Junction Trade Company).”

"To be idle and to be poor have always been reproaches, and therefore every man endeavors with his utmost care to hide his poverty from others and his idleness from himself."
—Samuel Johnson
