"BBB, I've lost count of how many times the Cosmos has me from embarrassing myself or becoming a pest to someone. Then again, there were even more times the Cosmos was out helping someone else."
Bob Boze Bell commented on Bob Boze Bell's blog post The Mickster Is Back In The Saddle
"It's a ghost leg, or two, Sue. In fact, it's a ghost image (really!) shimmering, at best, to give the elusiveness of the Mick and his mule."
Sue Cauhape commented on Bob Boze Bell's blog post The Mickster Is Back In The Saddle
"This looks like an interesting book. I have one critique about the second Daily Whipout: the horse looks (as least to my weary eyes) like he only has two legs, maybe three unless that's the tail in the back. Otherwise, all of these are dramatic…"
Margaret-Anne Moore commented on Bob Boze Bell's blog post Tales Told Out of School

The G-Man Trumps Everyone

October 31, 2014

   My artist amigo, Thom Ross, drove over from Santa Fe yesterday with 54 of my paintings and this guy:

The Distinguished Professor Paul Andrew Hutton in the crow's nest of my studio talking to his daughter about dinner plans. That's Elephant…

Tales Told Out of School

October 30, 2014

   Last weekend I was cut short in my comments at the Charlie Waters Memorial service by multiple pre-recorded church bells that went off in the middle of my talk. I have to admit it sounded very much like the Academy Awards music that is played when the producers want someone to shut up and get off the stage. I am convinced it was Charlie Waters himself, pulling the levers from beyond the grave in order to get me to stop telling a certain story about…

The Mickster Is Back In The Saddle

October 30, 2014

   My production manager, Robert Ray came into my office two days ago and said, "I was just looking at ten years worth of art files on the server and you need to publish Mickey Free as your next book." He is right. Point taken. Commitment made. Thanks Robert.…

Haunted Scenes From The Past

October 28, 2014

   Had a weird dream the other night. I dreamed my father made a confession to me: he actually had another son, besides me, and his name was H.D. Wilbanks, who I went to school with. In the dream I was stunned, realizing my father had another lifeThe  I didn't know about.…

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.
