Photo Of A Legendary Grizzly Bear Killed In Colorado In 1904 ...

          Hide and Skull of Old Mose

The 900 pound bear was known as Old Mose and had terrorized Southern Colorado ranchers and hunters since the mid 1880's. The bear was killed by Wharton Pigg on the left and John Anthony a Professional Hunter and his pack of hunting dogs. At one time Colorado had many Grizzly Bears. They were all but gone by 1930 when sculptor Louis Paul Jonas created a life size bronze statue of a Mother Grizzly and two Cubs called "Grizzly's Last Stand. A Grizzly was killed in Colorado by a trapper in 1951. On September 23, 1979 it was the last day of Bow Season. An outfitter, Ed Wiseman was guiding a hunter in the southern San Juan Mountains. He was walking down a trail and came upon a Grizzly and two cubs. The Mama Bear attacked with a vengeance. Ed was knocked to the ground and was able to grab an arrow tipped with a razor sharp broad head. He fought back stabbing the bear in the neck and in the side. The bear retreated a short distance and died. Ed shouted for help and the hunter came to his aid. Ed had to spend the night alone while the hunter made the long trek out for help. The next morning a helicopter flew in and got Ed to a hospital. He survived the ordeal.

Dionicio A Rodriguez (1891 - 1955) Was A Talented Artist And Architect ...

His works of art were made of metal and concrete and have withstood the test of time. He had a secret process for tinting concrete that he never shared with anyone. Dudley learned of his work when he saw a photo of a trolley car stop he built in San Antonio, TX in 1927.

Dudley Hit The Jack-Pot Today ...

Went to Jack In The Box the other day. Ordered 3 Tacos No Lettuce at the Drive Thru and Jack informed me they were out of Tacos! This was at 6:15 PM, prime dinner time. Dudley sent an email to JIB Corporate and filed a complaint. Got a call from a Regional Manager and he agreed there was no excuse to run out of one of their main food items. He sent me five free food coupons! Dudley Won :)

A Poem Frank And Dudley Wrote Years Ago ...


Billy The Kid, Billy The Kid.

My Grandma Said I'm Gonna Tell Ya What He Did.

He Broke Outta Jail, Didn't Pay No Bail.

Got A Double Barrel Shotgun, Loaded With Sixteen Dimes.

Deputy Tried to Stop Him, One Too Many Times.

Billy Shot Him Full Of Holes, Killed Him Dead.

"Keep The Change Deputy," Is What He Said.

The Moral Of This Story, Is Simple You See.

Don't Mess With Billy The Kid.

The Rest Is History.

After a trip to Lincoln New Mexico. Got the poem published in the 10th Anniversary Edition of the Billy The Kid Outlaw Gang Magazine!
