THE OLD WEST IS ALIVE AND WELL

I stopped in the Palace Saloon last Saturday evening and spotted a couple more old timers dedicated to keeping the days of the Old West alive for the present generation.


And just outside, a quartet alighted from a cab (not a stagecoach) preparing for a night of liquid refreshment, apparently.


Of course it is nearly Halloween and a number of costume events were going on in the Whiskey Row saloons.  More on that tomorrow.

In the meantime, here's today's gratuitous critter picture.


And one suggestion from President Barack Obama: you might consider a donation at this time to the Red Cross, which is performing yeoman duty back East in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

  1. Great costumes--they really have an old west look and feel. as for the critters-I think they bare a resemblance to you and me after we had spent time in Riley's liquor cabinet! Of course I am the younger of the duo, just following the lead of the elder....
