Pards,
Time to saddle up and hit the literary trail again!  I've got a story I'd like to tell, and I need your help.  It's historical fiction, based upon actual events.  Please PM me if you're interested!

Okay!
The story is called "The Last Patrol."  It takes place in thw spring and summer of 1876.  The basic jist is that Scarlet and Fritz have been married for a few years, and are settling ito their lives.  Fritz is recalled to active service with his old unit, I Company, 2nd U.S. Cavalry.  He must leave his home and join General Crook's column.  This will be a historical fiction piece, based on the 2nd's actions at the Battle of the Rosebud.  I've done quite a bit of research on the subject.  Scarlet decides to come after Fritz, and joins the column as a civilian scout, carrying a secret.  Ella and 'Sleep, I'll leave it to you whether you want to come or stay.  This will be Fritz' last action as a cavalryman.  I'll put out the first post later in the week.  All past and present posse members are welcome to come along.

You folks are doing a fine job with this story.  That last line about the dawn, Fritz, is superb; I could envision it in my minds eye.

Miz Scarlet, you must have a maze for an imagination; you keep coming up with more twists in this story - very good stuff. Smiley Grin

Why thank you El Peludo,

The other writers are a great deal of help with the twists and we have a great time writing togeather.

My folks always say I have some kind of imagination. Then they raise an eyebrow as if they wonder about me.  Grin It's good to keep 'em on their toes.

All,
Sorry I've been gone so long.  Real life took a turn I had to deal with.  Let me catch up on the story and I'll post soon.  Thanks to the lovely ladies for keeping this thread going in my absence.
Best,
Fritz

I have a little announcement that has nothing to do with the story.
The day after Christmas, I will go to Los Angeles to work on the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs entry in the Rose Parade.
A picture of the float design is here: http://www.caioof.org/Floats/Images/Artist_Concept/2010.gif

On New Years Day, I will ride that float in the parade.

I'm riding on the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Float in the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Years Day.

The Odd Fellows Float is the 80th entry (out of 92) in the parade.
The 6 floats before the Odd Fellows Float are
China Airlines (entry #67)
State of New Mexico (entry #70)
Anheuser-Busch (entry #71)
The Round Table of Southern California/Shanghai World Expo (entry #74)
Kaiser Permanente (entry #76)
City of Duarte/City of Hope (entry #78)

The other entry numbers are marching bands and equestrian units.
