    Remember that there are some things which aren't for sale.

    To be successful, be prepared to fail.

    Most teenage boys do think about just one thing.

    Be prepared to do what needs to be done, like putting down your favorite horse or dog.

    If you know about the Bill Picket Incident, you're officially a cowboy trivia nerd. If you have an error proof sheet featuring his brother Ben, and the corrected proof sheet featuring Bill, you're a cowboy wonk like me.

    This is Bill Picket

    This is Ben Pickett, Bill's brother, and this particular picture has been incorrectly identified as Bill since the moment it was took.

    Here's the "incident" that Mr. Verbica refers to, the USPS published a Bill Picket memorial stamp first in error illustrating his brother Ben Pickett (right) and then reprinting it with the corrected image of Bill Pickett (left). Some might focus on the value of what this kind of wrong could net, but the bronco busters on this forum are just glad they got it right. Sometime take a minute and learn who Bill Pickett was.-
