Bob thanks for the invite to this site!!!
The Western's Channel is my favorite channel besides Turner Classic Movies. I love all the interstitial pieces you have done. I did one for Turner Classic Movies a few years ago. The Channel needs to use you more. Those pieces really make the channel more than just a movie channel. Now when I hear the word "tony" in an old western or book, I know what that means.

You can watch the TCM video about me here:

Thanks again for the invite to this site! I am looking forward to posting here and learning new stuff about the old west!

Happy New Year!

Thank you for the invitation, Mr. Bell. I am highly looking forward to the efforts being made to restore Alamo Plaza and other historical sites in the country.

All the best,

Bob...........Thanks for the invite. Having lived in the West almost my entire life, I too, have a true love of the old West. My wife and I watch mostly classic westerns instead of the drivel that modern TV promotes. This is my first post, and I'm not familiar, yet, with the website, but will keep tuned in to see what's happening..

I don't know whose idea this website was, but I'm gonna give you credit. I'll leave it up to you to pass it along to the right person or just take it for yourself. Thanks, man. Great website! As soon as all this snow melts, I'll start gathering pictures of every ghost town and point of interest in the state of Montana.
