Sun up to sun down, we all worked to bring the dream of Robert 'Cowboy' Culbertson to reality. What a privledge to work alonside the likes of Jim Hatzell, from films such as 'Dancing with Wolves'...and most of the 'Boys from Illinois'...
They rarely stopped to take a break and I followed suit, knowing time would fly and we needed to finish by Thursday night, before the unveiling on Friday.
Cowboy and his wife, Donna, had decided to honor Richard DeShon by naming the hotel after him; but we had a tough time keeping a sign that big hidden from him when he showed up on location!
What a treat when he saw the sign;
he was delighted and planned to surprise his wife, Mignon,
by not telling her before she came to see the town herself.
