Dudleys College Roommate's Tribute To Carroll Shelby ...







When Dudley was in HS, there was a guy that lived on Granbury Rd in Ft Worth that had 3 Shelby Mustangs. He lived in a little frame house. He had a black Shelby Convertible that was Dudleys favorite of the 3, also had an orange hard top. He was in the convertible one evening parked in the parking lot of the JIB on Berry St where the Paschal kids hung out. Dudley talked to him about all of his Shelbys and remembers the guy raising the hood to show off the engine. Don't know what happened to the guy or his cars. They would be worth a fortune today! Dudley saw on the internet that Brent may paint a big mural on a building in Pittsburg, TX of his Carroll Shelby tribute. Now that would be cool!

The James Jordan Buck Is A Former World Record Typical WT ...











James Jordan, age 22 killed the buck on November 20, 1914. He was hunting with a Winchester Model 1892 Lever Rifle  in .25-20 WCF.  The buck was taken in Wisconscin.  James took the rack and cape to a local taxidermist to get a head and neck mount of the deer. The taxidermist moved away and did not leave a forwarding address. James thought his buck was lost forever.  Around 1964 James was surprised to find out his rack had come to be found not too far away. He was able to get the deer back!

Dudley has a replica minature antler of this rack hanging from his rear view mirror in his Dodge Ram. Also has one hanging from the pull chain for the Bankers Lamp in his Man Cave.

Open Skies Photographer Richard Douglass ...








took these great photos on the rim of the Palo Duro Canyon in West Texas. Five big Aoudad Rams were fighting for supremacy in a long bloody battle! Dudley would have liked to have been there!


 

Texas & New Orleans Mikado # 745 Leads A Freight Train ...



out of Beaumont past Fullers Cafe. Date not given but would guess 1930's. The train is going to New Orleans. It would not surprise me if this Steam Locomotive and Tender also made some runs to Dallas back during that time period. If so, it would have gone by the depot in Frankston and Dudleys in laws may very well have seen it roll by when they were kids!

It is amazing how many people have little to no common sense. Dudley is not sure they should not change the name to Uncommon Sense!
