    the cavalry protecting those making their way west and stage coaches delivering

    ... things like that. We are in the art business, so we know what we call buy/sell when we see it. There were several real artists who produced the work they sold, or galleries with real artist produced it wasn't totally devoid of merit.

    When done in Tubac, we headed back to the motorhome and the RV resort we're staying at. We took a few pictures on the side of the road with monster saguaro cactus, and returned to the RV ...
