Between Cosgrove and Kauk is Too Tall messing around by his van. The green van at thee end is Rudy's van. Shipley's van behind Grant.

Behind Shipleys van you see Tuckers bread truck.

Good to see OE hasn't strayed far from their marketing schematics in several decades. Tiny pink shorts have mercifully evolved on for climbers. But the OE cans pretty much look the same.

Hey Roy,
Nice work, I always thought that you were ahead of your time.
I talked to Dave Paul today and he said that he has some of Shawn's photos and that he has put some on disc. He also mentioned that he has been in touch with Shawn's sister and will be getting more. He said that he would like to hear from you. Email me and I'll send you his info.

Occasionally, Guy's would Indulge in Western Wear.
Kauk did it early on, with his Tony Lamas boots,
Resistol Hat, and Indian Wife.



Bruce Hawkins and Cowboy Roy, Lembert Dome Lot, 1992

My first pair of boots, aside from the red ones I got for Christmas age 4, were purchased used from Wheelers in
Bishop, 1980. I had Green Dot Cat's Paw soles put on. Bob Harrington told me at the time that few Bishop cowboys knew they were saddling up with what was at the time considered a connoiseur edging sole.

Shortly after, say mid 80's, R Walling followed suit after purchasing boots in Juarez as an aspect of forays from Hueco. People would call us on it. He'd devised the standard response "We're not cowboys, we're western wear enthusiasts."

Someone has a picture of Russ, Billy Russel, T Carter, Doug Macdonald, and myself all duded up in chorus line.

We would go Bouldering at the Milks and sometimes bust loose up easy stuff in our boots.

Here ya go Tardy.... the Chorus Line:



Here is where you and Billy are yapping about your boots... Billy had some ostrich skin jobs that he got off of Chuck Goldman, rodeo cowboy and pop star in Germany. Goldman laid the groundwork for David Hasselhoffs sucess in the Fatherland.



Here is a Rubidoux shot back when you were in your sailor shirt faze, well before the pink Asolo Onsites, he beret, and those black Marcel Marceau tights you seemed to enjoy a bit too much.

connie update: after some hard times living the Los Angeles party life in the mid-80's, she is alive and well and living in florida, happily married, kids, and so on.

roy, i think it's about time somebody pulled a no-nonsense hijack of your warped dreamweaver yesterday-is-now wastrel-in-training galaxy, and i'm JUST the guy to do it....i'm going through my boxes of photos tonight, prepeare to be swamped with my patented (c)bone-crushing bvb photoassualt. and a few embarrasing stories to boot.

actual quote from 1982: "you shouldn't make the lady cry, roy..."

Short Timer,
Are you pullin' my leg? That's Dirty Kenny, far left of Blitzo. Can't remember his real last name at the moment (or the last moment) He was an elemental factor in the General Shorty entourage.

T2, Ron Gomez, Weenis- cheers mates! Lot's more in my hopper; read bvb's post and strap in kids- the time machine is hummin'!

Wonder,
I believe you can email Mastadon for the whereabouts of Dimitri; great to have you around man, for years we wondered...

BVB,
Bring it on beeeyotch- I'd love some party crashin' big time uploadin' heavy liftin' goofball deep space navigation assistance. Let's drag race the Stonemasters thread! When Off White, Aldude, and Can't Say busted in on the middle/end of my first installment, I was in stitches. Some of it was nearly real time and Off definitely got that "4th wall" stage presence thing going.

Thanks for the Connie report, Jane thought she might be...
Speaking of Jane- f#ck, sh#t, f#ck, f#ck, I made her cry didn't I.

Hey Susan Pepe- how many bustin' up side achin' Mussy moments have you had today?

Mussy,
Thanks for the back up on the boot boy thing: check out in yer foto how serious and with what certain authority Billy is dispatching his wisdom to Tarbaby.

Others might enjoy a little anectodal stupidry on the Western Wear Enthusiast count:
Billy and I used to vie for "who knew more about Western Wear", my favorite retort to Billy's insistance that he understood brim syles, "Ya sure Billy, that's called a stingy brim (I knew, only 'cause Chuck Cochran told me so), 'sides YA EVER BEEN TO A HAT SHOP -CHUMP!?"

Place the wormhole camera inside bvb's wax encrusted ear canal for a retro lashback glimpse of condensed yarn inflation. Not, repeat, not my work.



You'll note that I too have a time machine, those things were common as a double album full of seeds all back the musty.



View out the back of the machine, whorls of whited out misspent synapses impede accurate description. WARNING:events in the past may be smaller than imagined.
