  • A long time ago, when I was much  younger, I was hanging around the edges of a conversation between two of our famous area cowboys. We were at a cattle sale, and I vividly remember Dee Bibb and Ike Wiggins talking about someone they both knew. One of them said to the other: “if you want to know a fella, handle money with him.” Those two highly respected cowboys had handled lots of money with lots of fellers, and they knew whereof they spoke.
