An interesing story for which I'm sure you did some research; you told me some things I didn't know. And is this for the Spring Challenge? If you want it to be, let Tracy know as this is a wonderful capture of that time of year in Virginia City and the Ponderosa.
What a shame neither Ben nor Hoss was there to see Joe triumphant in the race commemorating the Pony Express. And it seems like Hoss is filling in for Adam by adding a bit of sarcasm to his conversations.Enjoyed it.
(I had to smile at Joe's friend, Peter O'Toole, as I couldn't help but be reminded of the great actor.)Author's Response:
It's great what you've noticed. Yes, I did some research and it should be for the Spring Challenge.
Since Adam was no longer there at the time, I wanted to have him at least in this form, his proverbial Sarcasmus, transferred to Hoss.
I actually thought of the great actor Peter O'Toole!
Glad you like my story - thanks for reading and commenting.
