It was her younger sister, Dotty, who also knew quite a bit about guns. I met her when Bill Cody came by Dodge, KS, for a business meeting. When Bill, Annie and Frank Butler left for dinner, we stayed in Cody's private Pullman car, and had a party of our own, with the shades down.

I still remember her screaming,"My goodness Mr. E., THAT is some big gun you have there!"

80 is not old, even though I do seem to produce a fair amount of out-gassing.

I am glad you liked the story. I wrote it without a lot of dialogue, because I wanted it to be a template for a mini-series, and leave the dialogue to the script writers. I did not publish it "for sale", but it is copyrighted, so I can shop it around in a reasonably safe manner. So far, there have been lots of accolades, but no serious discussions, I think, because "westerns" are passe', unless you insert rockets, lasers, space vehicles and computer-generated visuals. After all, horses, cattle, western towns, saloons, bar girls, and old-timey railroads cost a lot of money.
