In the morning I’ll head for Oklahoma City for a weekend celebration of the West. It will be my fifteenth trip to the National Cowboy Museum. We began this wild ride we call the TCAA in 1998…little did we know just where it all would lead. There has been many great opportunities that have come my way as a result of my involvement with this group of craftsmen/artists. I remember a number of years ago when Dale Harwood complimented me on my improvement…a rare affirmation from one of the best! Yet there is still ample room for more improvement. I relish the challenge and look forward to the days ahead with the same excitement I had when I began over thirty years ago, only now with much more experience!
