William Jack Sibley went to Colorado in mid-June to slog away on the third novel in his “Texas Trilogy” (the other two: Any Kind of Luck and Sighs Too Deep For Words) which he somehow didn’t realize until too late that he had actually committed to finishing! (TIL members are glad you’re doing it!) “Meanwhile,” as W.J. writes (Bill? Jack? William Jack? Let’s go with W.J.)   “as founder and co-coordinator of the annual tribute to J. Frank Dobie, DOBIE DICHOS (http://www.georgeweststoryfest.org/dobie_dichos.html), I’m very honored to welcome the following Texas authors to speak this year, Friday, November 6, 2015 in Oakville, TX — Andrés Tijerina, president of the TIL; Carmen Tafolla, Poet Laureate of Texas; Bruce Shackelford, Author and ANTIQUES ROADSHOW Appraiser and Mary Locke Crofts, Author and Dobie interpreter. Come join us for our Fifth Anniversary Celebration! Campfires, chili con carne, pan de campo, cerveza fria and the words of the South Texas master.”  “Any tale belongs to whoever best can tell it,” J. Frank Dobie.
