9/end Whatever happened, she kept his letter her whole life. It was in her papers when she passed away in the 1990s. I just found it today.
8/ But after that, who knows. No one left to ask either. My mind is racing. This is a photo of my grandmother, Rebecca (Ritchie) Levine, I think from around that time. What happened in Colorado? What happened to Cowboy? I will never know
wow. so many thoughts. one could write a novel about “what could’ve happened after”... that letter is like a message in a bottle
7/ He sent the letter from Canon City, Co to General Delivery, Los Angeles on July 29, 1932. It looks like it got to Los Angeles on August 11. At some point, my grandmother picked up this letter (so interesting how mailed worked then!).
6/ But it doesn't end. On the back he wrote her a poem: I am going to the boss And call for my money And I goin to New York To see my honey !!!!
5/ My heart feels like it will explode out of my chest. Last page: "It is a long lonesome life but I like it" He ends with: "Be good and love, your Cowboy"
4/ The whole thing is like this. Page 2, about riding horses: "You see that is all I have ever done and that is all I really know. I have rode alot of long lonesome days by my self and wondered what it would be like to live with some one that cared for me"
3/ And this letter is like out of a western novel, it is a love letter from Cowboy to my grandmother. "You thot I was just kiden when I said I would write didn't you: But the joke is all on you I meant it. And I hope you will answer. Because Oh well, you know"
2/ It wasn't that something happened with a cowboy, it's that she had some thing with a man named Cowboy, in Colorado. This was a letter he wrote to her ("General Delivery, Los Angeles, Calif.") on his Cowboy stationary.
1/ My grandmother was wild when younger and in the early 30s drove a car around the USA with a girlfriend. She only hinted at this trip except to tell us at one point something happened with a cowboy. This afternoon I found this letter in some old papers and I am freaking out
Amazing. Thanks for sharing Andy!

@fredwilson @whitneymcn Happy cover Friday. Boots of Spanish Leather could be both the saddest (boy loses girl) and most uplifting (boy is ok with that, wants something to remember her forever) song of all time. Here are The Lumineers covering it.
dylan breakup songs cover friday? ok, i am game
those lyrics, so good Say for me that I’m all right though things get kind of slow She might think that I’ve forgotten her, don’t tell her it isn’t so
one of the things i really like about dylan is his proclivity to do his songs differently, i imagine that prevents them getting boring to him
so good, was not aware of that one. It's why I keep coming back to him this is also good:

Half the time you think how different people were, and the other half how similar.
what's past is prologue
And maybe this can lead our industry to to use a more accurate term to describe our biggest successes
"Unicorns are made up creatures, Whales are not" much better than, say, "Butterflies and zebras. And moonbeams and fairy tales"
