2009-04-27T23:04:00.000-05:00

My grandfather worked for Col. Goodnight, and a couple of my uncles worked on the JA. I was very fortunate to spend many hours at the different cow camps of the JA, from the Brice area, to the Palo Duro area.

Even though Col. Goodnight died almost two decades before I was born, I was able to absorb all the wonderful and tragic history of that time in Texas.

Larry McMurtry's lovely cousins grew up with me, and one will forever remain the love of my life.

Lonesome Dove was a very accurate representation of the Goodnight, Loving friendship.

I was actually born in the Adair Memorial Hospital. My wife, 20 years younger and infinitely more beautiful, still finds it amusing that the hospital I was born in is now a museum.

That is really cool. Thanks for linking Lonesome Dove, my brain bell was ringing and I couldn't figure out why...

Very interesting, Travis. I love historical anecdotes!

2008-04-23T11:34:00.000-05:00

Wow! Very interesting. The Goodnight-Loving Trail sounds a little dirty, though. *LOL* I was hoping to post a video from one of the concerts this past weekend for MTM, but I had nothing but problems uploading it, so I gave up. Maybe next week...

2008-04-22T09:55:00.000-05:00

If it's better late than never, my MTM post is up at Women of Mystery about the latest NY Comic Con.

P.S. I am Loving the Goodnight stories!

2008-04-22T07:36:00.000-05:00

As I was reading your post I thought...wait a minute, this is Lonesome Dove! Interesting to know the roots of one of my favorite books, ever. Another great western about friendship (and horses) is Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses.

My post is up...on Tornadoes, Tunes and Margaritas in Fort Worth.

2008-04-21T23:40:00.000-05:00

That is amazing. From the sounds of Loving Goodnight I seriously thought you were going to say it was the basis for Brokeback Mountain. Anyway, totally fascinating. I will have to find out more about my home town too. Right now it's the capital of porn in L.A.. Sad, but true.

2008-04-21T20:29:00.000-05:00

I finally went back and read it, that's such a great story, Travis, not many friends would risk their own fortunes just to see to their friends' burial... than again, last requests used to be sacred, but it's still a doozy of a last request.

Thanks for posting, and coming up with the my town idea, I learn something new every week - it's awesome.

2008-04-21T18:35:00.000-05:00

Cool story. And it did sound familiar. Now I have a cool factoid I can drop on my father-in-law when we watch Lonesome Dove again. Thanks.

The old west, even though it had it's perils, I think that would have been a very interesting and romantic time to live.

Hey Travis, I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I finally participated this week - Haunted Chicago

I'll drop back over to read everyone's a little later tonight.

2008-04-21T14:21:00.000-05:00

Cool story, Travis. Though, I'm not sure which would be odder-- a person named "Goodnight" or a town.

I have a My Town Monday up, myself.

March -- I stayed up too late listening to the game, but I did get a bit of writing done and they did win so I feel good. Take that Grace.

2008-04-21T10:22:00.000-05:00

Even though your town doesn't have centuries of history, like some of the other MTM contributers, there are still so many fascinating stories for the area! Thanks so much for sharing them.

2008-04-21T09:44:00.000-05:00

Thanks for the history on this character. I remmeber seeing his name in various western novels I've read over the years, particularly in some L'Amour novels. Didn't know the details although I'd picked up some stuff second hand.

2008-04-21T07:59:00.000-05:00

I've heard of Goodnight and Loving before too -- names like that stick with you. Our family traveled through the States about eight years ago and I had to be dragged away from all the historical markers I could not get enough of.

I love Larry McMurty's writing and will be reading Lonesome Dove again. It is a shame that once history becomes history, so many people tend to lose interest. The West was a time of some fantastic stories and events, and they deserve to be celebrated and remembered.

Part of me feels a little sorry for Charles Goodnight, living until 1929. How sad to see the West tamed; to live long enough to see the buffalo herds slaughtered and pristine country turned into cities.
