Came down to Tombstone yesterday and will be leaving mid­-morning today.  In reference to an earlier entry, so far I’ve been able to dodge all the bullets.  I’m confident I’ll survive.

We spend yesterday afternoon and had dinner with our good friends Ben and Mary Traywick.  Ben is Tombstone’s historian emeritus.  Mary cooked us an unbelievable Mexican dinner.  She’s written a book about her cooking called Fiery Foods of Tombstone.

Speaking of writing books, Ben has written 37 books with 25 of those about Tombstone.  He’s also written over 1200 magazine and newspaper articles.

The interesting thing about his writing is he doesn’t know how to type and doesn’t have a computer.  He writes everything out long hand and Mary types it up…Incidentally; he’s finishing two more books.  This 85 year old is talking about writing a half dozen more books.

Incidentally, if you would like to check out some of his books go to:  http://chronicleoftheoldwest.com/merchandise.shtml
