The Cowboy spent Saturday, June 26, at Brookville. Established in 1870, Brookville was also an End of Trail cattletown like our own Ellsworth. As I mentioned in the last installment of this here Cowboy Commentary, MDM Studios is in the process of makin a movie, The Last Real Cowboy, an theyve chosen Brookville as their headquarters. The Brookville Movie Roundup on Saturday was a real HOOT! A lot of our COWBOY Friends showed up to get in on the casting of the movie. Turns out Moon McCall, known in the modern world as Dennis Kasey, has a part in the film as a scout that guides the hero, Spit McGregor, across the wide windswept prairie. Another of our Yahoos, Wade Baringer, got the nod for a part, but were not sure jest what hell be doin. Wades a natural, why hes even got the right blood fer the job. His G-G-grandfather, George Smith, was a scout for Custer during the Kansas Indian Wars of the 1870s.
