If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a magazine or how crazy my personal life is, be sure to read the behind-the-scenes peek at the daily trials and tribulations of running True West. Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Some of it is enlightening. Much of it is embarrassing, but all of it is painfully true.
In addition to this current journal, my early journal entries show the rocky road and money lost in the True West Business Timeline.
Bob's biography - The Unvarnished Truth
Went home for lunch and whipped out a couple scenes for the next Classic Gunfight. Here is Kid Curry taking a bullet through his left bicep, his breast bone (took out two ribs as well) and coming out his right bicep. Needless to say, this must have hurt.
Curry had just shot Rollin Gardner's horse out from under him and was turning his attention to another posse member coming up Gibson Draw when Gardner came up from behind his dead horse and shot Curry.
This is Gardner shooting at Curry after the Kid shot his horse from under him. I believe I am correct in assuming Gardner lost two horses to the outlaws when they raided his ranch a day or so earlier and now the bastards had shot a third horse of his. If so, no wonder he shot to kill.
"I'm all in and might as well end it right here."
