I see you're an excellent Victorian seamstress. So is my wife. I love Calico Ghost Town. Also love Virginia City and Tombstone. I also noticed you raise horses and ride. So how come you're not on my Wyatt Earp Vendetta Ride that starts on Monday, Oct 12??? It'll be great fun! Maybe next year???
Hi back. Sorry alittle late, been trying to get my son ready for his field trip!! I was so glad to find this site. Been on the east coast and doing a lot of colonial times things. Ready to get back west!! :-)
Well......from one extreme, to another:0) Yeah, Red, maybe you DID mis-read. All I'm askin' for is a little conversation(I swear), and to get to know some folks in the Southwest. Maybe.....I toned that a tad strong(but hell, that's what my name means in Gaelic). And besides, a couple folks said they were happy to see things get to a "rollin' boil" for a change. I'm a good guy Red, just takes a bit to "feel" my sense of humor is all. Hope you'll keep in touch.....maybe keep me in line when needed?
Trust me Red.....you ARE wrong. I'm very new to, even the internet, let alone this type of social interaction(social intercourse:0)).....but I AM a forceful personality. I agree with your Mom....say what you mean, and mean what you say(in fact, I think I said that here). You won't see me back off, unless I realize I'm wrong. I'm a Leo(lion), not a weasel.But, in the long run....you'll make up your own mind there. Thanks for the compliment on my poetry......I've always tried to write what I've experianced, and always honestly.....BW
Well.....I got my first PC about two years ago (and I'm still learning all the jeegags, and wizzits) It sounds like (from your discription of a troll) that this type of thing has been goin' on for a long time....glad I missed it. Sounds like these trolls are basically insecure, and lackin' a life. As for me.....that's MY picture, you can see it on my books, and I've got nothin' to prove.....or hide (except maybe dirty drawers after a week-long pack-trip:0)
Years ago a group of reenactors from Carson City, Nevada would travel down to Calico for their annual competitions. Sounds like thing are still goin on in that neck of the woods. Glad to hear it.

Love your costumes & photos. Are the images of your family? Last time I was in Calico was about 1979, with my former wife. She had been wandering around in the shop, and told me the shop had a picture of her grandfather hanging there. We went back in and she pointed to a tin plate advertising cigarettes, using the image of her grandfather R.J. Reynolds. Susan was his granddaughter.
