Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Yancy Derringer ran in 1958-59 with Jock Mahoney in the title role as a suave ladies man and fighter of crime in New Orleans. His companion was an Indian named Pahoo, played by an actor with the unusual name of X Brands.

Yancy's signature weapons were a sleeve derringer and another in his cane handle. Pahoo sometimes had a sawed off shotgun under his blanket (more sawing) and his main contribution to the dialogue was the phrase "We go!"

Jock's acting career stretched from the 1940's up into the 1980's.

When the pioneers crossed the treeless prairies, they needed something to burn for their cooking fires. They copied the Indians and used dried buffalo dung or "chips". I've tried it, and they burn good.

Today the main use for buffalo chips is in throwing contests. The individual record of 186’ 7” was set in 2000 by a Michigan man, well behind the 204’ toss recorded by Kail Bowman, then a Chadron State College track and field athlete, in team competition in 1990.

Sugarfoot ran on TV from 1957-1961. Correspondence-school law graduate Tom Brewster travels west to seek his fortune. Unfortunately, his "cowboy" abilities leave a lot to be desired and earn him the nickname "Sugarfoot", which is one step lower than a "Tenderfoot". Will Hutchins played the title role and continued to act through 2010.

There sure were a lot of those old TV western shows. I have a list of 15 more. Anyone getting bored yet?

Cheyenne was shown on TV from 1957-62. After the Civil War, nomadic adventurer Cheyenne Bodie (played by Clint Walker) roamed the west looking for fights, women, and bad guys to beat up. His job changed from episode to episode. Walker acted through the 1990's and died just last month at the age of 90.

I'm 51 years old so a lot of these shows predate me, and although I was born in 66, didn't get to watch TV until we came back to the US in 75. We didn't get AFN at the time in Germany and Spain.

All that said......Nope not bored yet, in fact I watch some of these shows on TV regularly on GRIT, MeTV and H&I.

Most actors seem to practice the pause for effect in the middle of a sentence.

"Howdy, gents, I'm here to take the...(pause)...stagecoach to Yuma."
"Frankly, Seymour, you habits are driving me...(pause)...up the wall.

Listen for it. You'll be surprised how often you hear it in shows both old and new.

At least they aren't as bad as William Shatner with his over dramatic actions and pauses, LOL. Speaking of him I think I recall seeing him in some Westerns.

Pecos National Historical Park's main unit is located about 17 miles east of Santa Fe, NM and just south of Pecos.

The main unit of the park preserves the ruins of Pecos Pueblo, also known historically as Cicuye. The first Pecos pueblo was one of two dozen rock-and-mud villages built in the valley around AD 1100 in the prehistoric Pueblo II Era. Within 350 years the Pueblo IV Era Pecos village had grown to house more than 2,000 people in its five-storied complex.

The main unit also protects the remains of Mission Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de Porciúncula de los Pecos, a Spanish mission near the pueblo built in the early 17th century.

Pecos was visited by expeditionaries with Francisco Vásquez de Coronado in 1540. The Spanish mission church was built in 1619. A traditional kiva was built in front of the church during the Pueblo Revolt in 1680 as a rejection of the Christian religion brought by Spanish colonists. However, when the Spanish returned in 1692, the Pecos community stayed on friendly terms with them. The site was abandoned in 1838, after the Pecos population suffered from marauding Comanches. The surviving remnant of the Pecos population moved to the Jemez Pueblo.

The Pecos people enjoyed a rich culture with inventive architecture and beautiful crafts. Farming provided a main part of their diet and staple crops included beans, corn, and squash. Their location, power and ability to supply goods made the Pecos a major trade center in the eastern part of the Puebloan territory.

A side note on the Old Clint Walker Cheyenne Show. Mr Walker went on Strike mid way, and one of the issues was that Warner Brothers was getting a 50% kickback on any of Mr Walkers Personal appearances.. CLint did not feel like sharing that for his work. So the Show for two years featured his sidekick Bronco Layne AKA Ty Hardin in the show.. Pretty much doing Clint Walker.

By the way one of my favorite episodes of Cheyenne was where he was the only White man to See Custer's Last Stand. As a captive of the Indians. A 2 parter no less

Seems most of those old TV shows of that time frame had a Custers last stand episode and an episode that featured a Gatling Gun..

And speaking of Ty Hardin, Bronco ran from 1958-62. A former confederate soldier wanders the old west, and meets such famous characters as Jesse James, William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody, and Theodore Roosevelt. Ty had frequent acting roles, as recently as 2010.

The Cisco Kid ran on TV from 1950-56, with Duncan Renaldo as Cisco and Leo Carillo as comic sidekick Pancho. The Cisco Kid and his English-mangling sidekick Pancho travel the old west in the grand tradition of the Lone Ranger, righting wrongs and fighting injustice wherever they find it. They usually finished up each episode with a joke and "Oh Cisco...Oh Pancho"

Both actors were near the end of their careers and retired soon after the series ended. As an aside, California has a state park and a beach named after Carillo.

From what I read when Clint Walker came back.. Ty Hardin had done well in the ratings.. But Warner Brothers just did not have room to do 2 cowboys.. so have to get rid of one.. :(
