Those Were The Days My Friend

August 21, 2017
   Didn't see the eclipse. Clouds, and a deadline, got in my way.
   Last week when I was in Tombstone, I had a great talk with Ben Traywick who showed me the very first building he worked in when he came to town in 1968 (over his left shoulder). 

Ben Traywick, age 90, on Allen Street in Tombstone

   Ben said back in those days he wrote for ten different Western history magazines, four treasure magazines and two In-din mags. Those were the days, my friend, we thought they would never end.

   Today, there are two Western history magazines and one In-din magazine that I know of. In general, I think maybe there's hope for the future.
