Had my second fire of the season in my studio stove and when I went outside to get more wood I spied this fiery sunrise over Ratcliff Ridge.

My good friend Paul Northrop sent me this old 1949 article on the Jones boys.
They were friends of Billy the Kid. And in the case of the youngest Jones boy, his mother sewed his eyelid back on after he fell (was pushed) into broken glass!
