ROVIN' DUSTY DROVER STUFF


Don “Dusty” Maiers

  Got a nice note from Ron Walkshorse in Utah. He sent much information concerning the movie location of Fort Apache and several pictures of the fort as it is today. The owner of the property did not consider maintaining the site so it is in a sorry state. The new owners have showed some interest in cleaning it up, but nothing definite. Ron also mentioned Clint Walker of "Cheyenne" fame who lives in Kanabb with his wife, Susan. It was a real nice note and deeply appreciated. Especially the check for postage! Thank you!



ROUNDING-UP

Sorry to report that our dear friend and Trail Rider Wrangler, “Mister” David Bracken has recently passed away. That's all I have now, in the next newsletter I hope to post more about it.


Happy Trails and Warm Campfires!

  “Miss” Teresa, her daughters and Steve went back east for the ceremony at Arlington Cemetery for Ed“Paniola” Phillips about the middle of July. They are back now.

  Sad news... I received word about Tim“Durango” McIlvain. He was one of the original members. He made several items that we show proudly. He contributed a lot to our early meetings by keeping a regular pic-pic with “Roper”.

Tim 'DURANGO' McIlvain

Tim moved to Sacramento area last February in an assisted living place and passed away in April this year. His family did not notify us of his passing so we heard of it late. Via Con Dios, old Pal!



ROUNDING-UP

Got a call from Tom “Cowboy” Ratican up in Havala. Not much news but the fires were close to him. They evacuated him for two days but had no trouble. Good!!! All is well.

Erin, Tommy Farrell's daughter, called. Just checking in and bringing us up to date as to her activities. Not a lot happening but good to hear from her.

ROVIN' DUSTY DROVER STUFF


Don “Dusty” Maiers

Got a note from Bob“Rocky Bob” Sobecki about the Maverick TV Show. It will be aired daily starting Monday, July 7th at 3:00 PM on Direct TV. That should show up on cable some where. What a treat!

Sheldon“Manitoba Man” Hall has been busy collecting information on the Civil War Re-Enactment Groups. It seems that the government is stomping down on the use of black powder in these shows. The use of black powder has been allowed all of these years. Things have changed a lot from the "Good Ole Days!!!"

I received the date for the “Jim Roberts Round-Up” at the Sportsman's Lodge. It will be on August 8th, 2008. Starts at about 4:00 PM and is over generally about 11:00 PM. There will be many celebrities there to talk to and always good entertainment. Herb Jeffreys is scheduled to be there and he is one of the Trail Riders Honoree Members. The tab is $20.00 per person and entitles you to a Buffalo Burger Dinner.

Tom “Cowboy” Ratican sent in some information about Havila which is most interesting. They have a celebration of Havila Days around the first of May. We missed it this year but it is one of the events we like to attend. He also sent along a couple of jokes but some are a little raunchy to print.



ROUNDING-UP

It's a real pleasure to get news concerning our members. It's fun to know how the world is treating each one of us.

Haven't heard from Kevin “Hondo” Cannon in a coon's age. Maybe this will “Prime the Pump.”

Don “Dusty” Maiers

St. Patrick's Day celebration at Corrigan's place was a hoot! Trail Rider Rick “Texas Red” Tucker was the entertainer again this year for the umteenth time. He sang more Irish tunes than I knew existed, and I don't think he played any of them twice!

Tom Corrigan served his corned beef and cabbage and it was excellent. He also served prime rib this time and I had to try it. (I love prime rib!) It was some of the best I've eaten. I also had to try some of “Miss” Charleen's corned beef and I almost lost my hand reachin' for it!

“Miss” Julie, (“Texas Red’s” wife) showed up a little later, after work but as welcome as a summer breeze. It's always good to see her.

This month (April) has five Wednesdays in it, so start making plans for a “Ladies Nite” on the 30th. We haven't made any plans as of yet but we will send out a notice as to “Where & When.”

Trail Rider Ed “Paniola” Phillips has had a long, long session in the hospital. At this writing he is still convalescing and building his muscle strength back up.



ROUNDING-UP

Tom “Cowboy” Ratican is a submitter to the Kern County Newspaper, “The Fence Post.” He has drawn pictures to illustrate the poetry stories written by the late Will “Cherokee Slim” Lacey.

“Cowboy” also said that everything was great in Isabella. He called with a trivia question wanting to know if they had screw off lids or corks in the wiskey bottles in the late 1800's. I told him just to check his memory, the old ****.

Ladies Nite on January 30th was a mixed bag. We went to a place called Yankee Doodles which was quite nice. Unfortunately, they weren't ready for us. They did good making us welcome but the owners had neglected to tell the help to expect us. It all worked out well and the fellowship was great. I also was able to remember the camera and was able to get a few good pictures.

Our next Ladies Nite will be at the end of April. Have to start making plans now. Any suggestions are welcome.

Stoney called and sent along some submissions for the newsletter. You'll be receiving them in the mail and I'm sure they will be of interest to all of us.

Ed “Paniola” Phillips has been in the hospital for a couple of weeks. However, Teresa said that things are coming along pretty good now. They have taken him off the respirator so he can breath on his own.

ROVIN' DUSTY DROVER STUFF


Don “Dusty” Maiers

The end of the year Holidays are a real pleasure and enjoyable but, to me, it's real nice to get them over with. It seems to me, a lot of pressure is on us to do party's and other things which takes away from our normal pace. I think looking forward to them is nice, looking back at them is better.

Got a short note from Trail Rider J.D. who is living in Idaho now. He sent along a couple of pictures of his Ranch and livestock. When I talked with him a couple of weeks ago, he said he and Sandy weren't taking much riding lately because of the snow. Well, there's always the snowmobile!

Haven't heard from Durango since he moved. I was hoping to get his new address soon.

Our Ladies Night Dinner is coming up at the end of this month (January). Maybe this time I'll remember my camera and get some pictures for the club.

Golden Grizz, Chester and myself took a trip to Havala to visit with Tom “Cowboy” Ratican. We went up there the back way which is the high desert trip. We did manage to see some snow near the top of the trip. The best part of the trip is on the down hill side heading into Lake Isabella. The stands of pines and generally green surroundings are a relief after the high desert.

We had a good time and introduced Cowboy to a new eating place. He thought it was just a little bar but the food was good and the company was excellent. I bet we go there again.



ROUNDING-UP

Havala Days are being scheduled for May. It is Cowboy's day to have fun and “strut his stuff”. The date should be about the first week or the second week of May. We are going to try to make it up there this time.

Haven't hear from Lone Pine or Miss Donna lately. Miss their input.

Looking forward to Ladies Night at the end of this month. This is to be at another new place and sounds pretty good. Will keep you all posted.

ROVIN' DUSTY DROVER STUFF


Don “Dusty” Maiers

Well... the annual Christmas Party is now history. We had it at the Home Town Buffet for convenience reasons and it was quite nice. Ed “Chatsworth” Iverson and Carla made a welcome appearance. He has not been in the best of health for some time so it was a pleasure to see them.

Rick “Texas Red” Tucker showed up with his guitar and without “Miss” Julie due to prior commitment. Rick entertained us with Christmas music and we joined him entertaining the crowd with our singing. It must have been OK, they didn't throw us out.

As usual, I didn't bring a camera so I didn't get any pictures.



ROUNDING-UP

It was a pleasure seeing the many people together at the Christmas Party but my thoughts always go to the ones who were not there.
