Place name: Bixby
Description: A small town in Dent Township, with a post office since 1910. Named for William K. Bixby, official of the American Car and Foundry Company. David Cureton obtained a post office at Red Point (1887), so called because it was located on a hill of red clay. In February, 1906, it was moved to Bixby, two and a quarter miles east of Red Point. (Postal Guide; R.M. ATLAS (1939); W.H. Copeland; F.D. Cureton)

Boss Man Hanks showed up in my forest (Rubi) just after I finished this post. No lie. He was riding a horse apparently, and is hidden in the photo by the interface. He’s very old! (2003)

I was there attempting to figure out if I wanted to sell a 4096 parcel next to the forest. An avatar offered me $5000 lindens for it today (*not* Boss Man Hanks). What does his appearance mean — one way or the other? He decided not to enter my land (green) and rode north instead, following the east border of the forest. He stayed in the woods.

The wife and I visited the local Dollar Tree tonight. 4 out of 5 Simpsons purchased (minus Marge — soon!), and also what appears to be the arch-nemesis of Taum Sauk in the continuation of the Bigfoot art/toy/junk happening (“Afterfoot”?).
