The National Day of the Cowboy is July 27, 2013, this Saturday. Jim Olson is having his monthly Western Heritage show at the Old Trading Post in Casa Grande, AZ, with Nancy Ruybal and John Messenger performing. If you can't make this one (and I can't), celebrate the day in any old cowboy way that suits your fancy even if it's just putting on a pair of cow boots and a cow hat to show your Western Heritage and maybe eat a cowboy steak in a cowboy steakhouse.
Jimmy Carter's essay on John Wayne is published in the American Cowboy magazine for Aug-Sep 2013 to commemorate a new book on "The Duke" entitled John Wayne: The Genuine Article by Michael Goldman and Insight Press. Take a peek at the magazine to see what a President says about John Wayne.
HAPPY DAY OF THE COWBOY!!
