old cowboy in the picture was the guy I based Mr. Sherwood in my book.
He was my dad's police chief back when my dad was a newbie. His famous
one liners that are still floating around the police station today
like... "Never kick a turd, he may be your boss one day." I had to sneak
a pic of my favorite old time cowboy because they are a rare and dying
breed. I was a little starstruck that day.
