Hey y'all. I am happy to bring you this month's Nooseletter. There are a lot of good articles for you to enjoy. You all know our own animal rights activist, Randal Massaro. He has provided me a youtube video by Chief Investigative Reporter, George Knapp. It is a 7-part video documentary. Although it is a bit older, these offenses are still being done today. Please donate to Union Members for the Protection of Wildlife (aka UMPWI) by clicking here. It is a constant battle and they could really use your support. You can visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
We have a new feature on the Reel Cowboys website; it is called "Old Time Radio" and you will see it on the left-hand menu. Here you can listen to 1940s and 1950s radio shows. There is only one show online right now, and that is all there will be until I am informed that it is being used; otherwise it is a waste of time. I have many more I can add, such Gunsmoke, The American Trail, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, etc... Anyway, enjoy the 1956 Laramie Radio Show by clicking here or navigating to it via the "Old Time Radio" button on the left of the webpage.
Lastly, in June, I am going to Georgia to visit family for the summer. I might, but might not be publishing a Nooseletter until August or September. I do not yet exactly what will happen.

Quiet Kansas Town
The Sunflower State was not admitted to the Union until 1861, long after many others. It’s easy to assume that there isn’t nearly as much history in Kansas as there is in the original 13 colonies. However, the area has a rich history that’s just as eventful, if not more so, than New England’s tales of...
