In the mail this morning

lil buckaroo set

In an amazing burst of unusual efficiency and speed, the U.S. Postal Service transported these two sets of Little Buckaroo bowls and cups from scenic Idaho Springs, Colo. to Brookland, Ark. in less than two days.

The Ebay vendor mailed the package on Monday morning and it was ready for pickup here by 9:30 a.m. today.

I already covered the significance of these pieces here a couple of days ago, so suffice it to say that I’m delighted to have them.

Here’s a detail shot of the artwork on the bottom of the bowls. Till Goodan drew the youngster in a way that made it possible to see it as a boy or a girl. I suspect his daughter Betty Goodan Andrews, who retains sole control of the rights to her father's name and all of his work, was the model.
