This week for the BBE!

Started out with a show at the amazing Colorado Railroad Museum that had a great display of Buffalo Bill Cody’s reliance of the trains that transported the hundreds of people, animals, and props all across America and Europe for his Wild West Exhibition. I’ll bet he didn’t suspect all that when he was working for the Kansas Pacific Railroad as a young man, providing their workers with 12 buffalo a day for $500 a month! Then I went on to Peakview Senior Living, where four senior communities gathered together to hear Bill’s adventures… the great part of doing senior communities is that almost all the time they have stories of Bill to tell that were passed down from their immediate relatives… for instance, after the show, a lady named Betty Proctor told me of her relatives in Kansas that showed her a place on their property where Buffalo Bill once carved his name!
