    Thanks for your comment on The Artist... I looked up the lectures on YouTube, watched Grayson Perry. Magnificent yellow shoes he was wearing. Thanks for the delightful reference. Made me day.

    Thanks for the comment on Riding down East Carolina. If you're interested in Wells Fargo history, check out this book: http://www.amazon.com/Under-Cover-Wells-Fargo-Carolyn/dp/B000GR3U7W/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1379283874&sr=1-2&keywords=under+cover+for+wells+fargo

    I love first hand accounts and this one is so pure, the language and spelling is atrocious, to be expected of one of the original denizens of Tombstone and a friend to the Earp Bros.
