ElectionsVotePhew. Just flew in from Oklahoma not just 20 minutes ago and I won’t even go near one of those “boy howdy are my arms tired” tired jokes. Was visiting some pals at the national Cowboy Hall of Fame and Museum. I mention that because(more..)

ElectionsVoteTake off your Stetsons, O’Farrell’s and Bailey toppers. Raise your right hands. Bow your heads. By the power vested in me, I’ve just deputized all of you to sleep in. A whole bunch. Whenever you wake up, we’ll start our trail (more..)

ElectionsVoteC’mon. Hop up in that saddle and let’s go mosey into simpler times...   (PHOTO CAPTION: This week in 1987, the larger-than-life director, John Huston, was in town, filming a movie in a Rye Canyon warehouse. Huston was in his declin(more..)

ElectionsVoteI couldn’t help but note. Some of you more heartier souls are starting to climb up into the saddle wearing tees and polo shirts. Well. And pants, hats and boots as well. But you might want to bring a jacket. And some woolly chaps and gloves. T(more..)
