The Tow-Head Gang

tow-head gang

A rare photo of the little known Tow-Head Gang in the early years. The gang was last seen looking out the back window of a red and white ’57 Ford Fairlane, as it sped west on a rural Texas Panhandle road. Rumor has it they settled in Buckeye, Arizona where they lived a quiet–though somewhat tumultuous–life before dispersing sometime in the late ’60s. You can read more about them in the book, “Just A Boy”, written by the surly, yet loveable, leader of the group, Charles. He’s the bad-looking hombre on the right.

Boom or Bust?

One week from today–Saturday, May 21–we will hold book signing event #7 in my home town, Borger, Texas. I was born in Borger almost 61 years ago, but didn’t live there that long. I know when I was very young, we moved away and moved back several times. Some of my family still lives there—or near there—but most have moved to other places. Read the rest of this entry »
