The Jones Boys Reisited

 December 7, 2021

  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.

Another ridiculous sunrise over Ratcliff Ridge

   My good friend Paul Northrop sent me this old 1949 article on the Jones boys.

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!

"My women understand me. They take one look and they know they can expect nothing."
