Message:  Hey Doug,

Your memories and stories from childhood are as rich and earthy as your lyrics today. Everybody should have an uncle Cowboy Elmer in their family tree, even if he's a swingin' from it!

My only recollection of my great-grandma Nettie Bethia Haws / Mullinville, Kansas, was her always saying "Hey hat, whereya going with that boy?!!" as I had the perverbial Davey Crockett coon-skin hat on a little head. From what my ma's cousin told us before she died, Nettie married in her 40's and was one of those Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (without the doctor's degree) when she was younger. Attended the funeral of Jesse James, as she and her husband, John Alonzo Holbert were friends of the James gang, and often offered refuge.

So I guess some of my relations should have been hangin' in there, too.
