Ringo and Curly Bill By Fly?

July 7, 2020
   Richard Starkey—Ringo Star—is eighty today? Holy Ludwig floor tom, how could that be?

  It was twenty years ago today, well, okay, it's more like fifty-six years ago, now, if you know what I mean. The Liverpool Lad was a tad inspirational to me.

The Exits, Girl's Gym, Kingman, Arizona,
9 P.M. December 31, 1964. L to R: Charlie Waters, BBB and Wayne Rutschman

    I bought that three-piece Beatles suit at Central Commercial in Kingman for $17 because no one wanted it. I still have the jacket. In fact, my son Thomas wore it to his prom. That's how cool it was. Here's me wearing it today.

 Just don't ask me
to button it.

   This is a scratchboard done from a Fly photo of an unidentified Cochise County cowboy. Could it be the notorious Galeyville leader of the Cowboys?

Daily Scratchboard Whip Out:
"The Galeyville Cowboy"

   If it isn't Curly Bill, you can damn sure know it is a cowboy who knew Brocius.

"I see by your outfit you are from Galeyville."
