Cowboy weekend, p. 298: "I got up and left for more sights - you have seen them in Abilene, Dodge City and any other place those days. I walked around for perhaps an hour. The two toddies were making me feel different to what I had felt for months, and I thought it was about time for another, so I headed for a place across the street, where I could hear a fiddle. It was a saloon, gambling and dance hall ... a girl came up and put her little hand under my chin, and looked me square in the face and said, "Oh you pretty Texas boy, give me a drink." -- My First Five-Dollar Bill, by J.L.
