Jim’s Quote of the Day:

“Didn’t seem to me that Owen Chantry was taking any chances, though. When he put his pants on in the morning he also put on his gun belt and his gun. Most men put their hat on first. He put on that gun belt ‘fore he drew on his boots. ‘You figurin’ on trouble?’ I asked him once. He threw me a hard look. ‘Boy,’ he said, ‘when a man comes at me shooting I figure he wants a fight. I surely wouldn’t want him to go away disappointed. I don’t want trouble or expect trouble, but I don’t want to be found dead because I was optimistic. I’ll wear the gun, use my own good judgment, be careful of what I say, and perhaps there won’t be trouble.’ ” – Louis L’Amour in “Over on the Dry Side
