… besides Ace Reid and Lex Graham, one of the first Cowboy Cartoonists that I was exposed to was Bud McCaulley.

This book was given to me as a gift in 1996 by a client of mine.

It was lost for a period of time during a move that I had made, and it wasn’t until just recently that I discovered it again.  Unfortunately it is a little “worse for the wear”, but no worries.

Bud McCaulley has always been a favorite of mine, and will continue to be.

There are a lot of opinions about Charles M. Russell and Frederic Remington as artists.  I have admiration for the both of them as they each had unique styles.
I came across these “first day covers” and “stamps” a few years ago.  I had misplaced them and several other items for quite a number of years.
I recently found these items and thought I would share.

Merle Haggard in Color

The first cassette tapes I ever bought were Merle Haggard from Columbia Records and Tapes.

I have put lots of quarters in jukeboxes across these United States over the years in honky tonks, beer joints and dives.

I can say that I have probably played more Merle Haggard tunes than any other artist.

I have been thinking about what The Cartoon Cowboy would draw as a memorial to Merle.

So here it is. (Please feel free to Share)

R.I.P. Merle !
