Hi folks, I know it’s been awhile since I last posted. I can’t tell you how much I have gotten out of my time on Mastodon this last year I really enjoy engaging with people here. It’s so much more affirming and useful than on that other site. We are all learning from each other and that’s what it’s all about. 1/2
U.S. Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves was the most feared lawman of the old West. Standing a muscular 6‘2“ tall, he was was relentless and absolutely formidable. Alive or on a stretcher, Reeves always got his man, no matter how long it took, or how arduous the task. No sensible outlaw messed with him. But some fools had to find out the hard way.
