“I would like to see every woman know how to handle firearms as naturally as they know how to handle babies.” Annie Oakley

Didn't you say, that you dated her in High School?
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!"
Sounds like a line out of your short story LLE!
READ IT!!!!!--------Thanks, Sammy
and enjoyed it. It should be published. Is it? You old fart...
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.
at the time ;0))
