Old West Trivia
It just happens. Sometime, and hour or two down the walk in the park, I have to pull myself back to what it is I'm supposed to be researching. You can see how this might slow down the writing some.
So today, I thought I'd post a few news articles from The Owyhee Avalanche. I love how they used the language, plus it's always interesting to take a look into what folks were doing and thinking--especially the good stuff--real life that's not included in the history books.
Here are a few items from the April 3, 1875 issue. The first shows that nothing ever changes. We're always complaining about our roads. With justification, I might add.
This next item has me totally baffled--maybe a hunting party? Nevertheless, the article tickled my funny bone. Maybe you can tell me what it's all about.
