Wearing a target on your shirt was then, just like now, a dangerous under taking. One I could not do.
Ask me about the legendary desert Bigfoot. A.K.A the Sandsquatch and his more elusive cousin, the Albino White Sands Dunefoot.

There was a follow up article in the Grants Pass newspaper but I couldn't reproduce it because only the left half of the article could be seen.  The right half had been cut off.  Anyway, from what I could ascertain, the authorities were still searching for the other brother, Max Lewis, who was thought to be wounded.  Meanwhile, a third member of the gang was apprehended, one Ed Primrose, who admitted that he had a gun hidden in a newspaper while Chief of Police Gibbon was arresting him.  The bandit pulled out the gun and shot the chief two times, the bullets entering just under his heart.  It's kind of convoluted how these guys were caught, then some of them escaped, and were caught again.  I'll follow the story.  Bound to get a clearer picture during the trials.

I read this as fresh man instead of freshman. Spicy talk! LOL
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I guess we learned one thing.  Beware of freshmen with burning caps.

100 years later, and some things do not change.
After watching The Highwaymenon Netflix, I ordered the book "I'm Frank Hamer: The Life of a Texas Peace Officer". The book just arrived.

That sounds like a cool book.  I loved that movie.  Brilliantly filmed, especially how they kept Bonnie and Clyde just outside of the action, until the very end of the movie.  Very poetic, in an offbeat way.

Oh nice. I just listened to a podcast on him. Interesting man of his time- a very transitional time. Was this the book that was funded by his wife  after his death?
