Boze Boots & Dr. Bugs

April 6, 2017
   Found an old photo of myself taken in March of 1980 when I was hot on the trail of the Wyatt Earp-Curly Bill shootout site in the Whetstone mountains. First stop was Tucson where I picked up my custom-made Boze Boots by John Weinkauf, then on down to Rio Rico where Kathy and I stayed. She took this photo of me wearing my new boots.

   Someone asked me if I still have them. Yes, I do:

Back to Dr. Bugs
  Came back around to the little known (in my history circle, at least) "Dr Bugs." I am quite intrigued by him and have some new things to say about him in my ongoing quest to find the truth behind the Olive Oatman story. As a matter of fact, he's just coming into view:

   If you want to read about his background and how he relates to the Olive Oatman story, you can read it right here: The Strange Case of Dr. Bugs.

   "The appearance of things change according to the emotions,
and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic
and beauty are really in ourselves."
