Richard Prosch was kind enough to invite me to participate in his "Personal West" series, following in the huge footsteps of Charles Gramlich, Gary Dobbs, Laurie Powers and Rich himself. My contribution will be posted sometime today on MERIDIAN BRIDGE.
In writing the piece, I discovered that my personal experience with the West mainly involved playing at (and continuing to play at) being Davy Crockett, Zorro and any number of TV cowboys.
That required a lot of toys, of course, and it seems my parents spoiled me much more than I realized. Here's a gallery of some of the stuff I remember best from my "Personal West".
