Lady Justice (byBettyHT)

SUMMARY:  This is my Chaps and Spurs entry for April.  The topic is temporary insanity which was introduced in that era and tried out as a defense at a fictional trial in Virginia City.  The jury is going to have to deal with a complex issue so the call goes out for better educated citizens, and guess who gets tapped for jury duty?

My Name Is Moses Lincoln (by BettyHT)

Summary:  This is my March 2019 Chaps and Spurs entry.  The words to be used are massacre, reconstruction, sewing, citizen, and oversight.  A new hand at the Ponderosa stirs Joe’s suspicions but what he learns is not what he expected and is far more profound and life-changing too.
