Good morning from South Dakota

20120526-075402.jpgLots of open spaces. Trains chug by. Grass grows. Wind blows. I'm in Hot Springs South Dakota now. Far away from where I was. Meeting a legend of a cowboy. I ate Chinese food last night with Dayton Hyde. He's amazing to look at. A large hulking figure walking with a cane wearing a cowboy hat and a plaid shirt. His weathered face is a road map telling stories of rodeos and rodeo clowns and bulls and a lifelong friendship with Slim Pickens. A life of ranching. An English degree from UC Berkeley. 20 novels and latter part of his life devoted to giving Mustang horses a place to roam. This documentary is going to be great. 20120526-080510.jpg They know Dayton by name here do checks don't matter.
