Gary Lendennie has written a jewel of a novel with this off-the-wall tall tale of the Wild West

Phoenix (PRWEB) January 27, 2013

EXCERPT: My great-great grandfather, Rufus T. Breckenridge III was perhaps the most prolific liar and storyteller in the history of verbal communications. Either that or he had somehow acquired in his vast travels the unnatural ability to be in a number of different places simultaneously. This opening statement from the introduction to The Potentate of Walking Horse alerts the reader that a fun-loving, laugh-out-loud, maybe a little dark but always entertaining, journey through the Old West is about to begin. This story, set in the 1880s and 90s, is narrated by Rufus T. Breckenridge III on his 100th birthday. Charging straight ahead from one adventure to another (sometimes under the guidance and protection of an unknown power) this tongue-in-cheek account of how the West was really won will have the reader turning pages faster than a bottom-of-the-deck draw in a crooked poker game.

Gary Lendennie, author of this uniquely endearing novel, blends fact with fiction so well its almost impossible to tell where one stops and the other starts. Moonshiners, space aliens, cannibals, robots, Indian magic and ambitious politicians, all play a role in this one-of-a-kind adventure. So saddle up, load your six-shooter, and enjoy the ride.

Starting in Reno in 1890, Rufus T. Breckenridge III, an unlikely hero whose mission in life is survival, exacts revenge on a former partner, a half-breed Indian named Willie Snowshoe, and is surprised by a vision that appears just in time to save his life. After the town marshal insists he take up residence elsewhere, Rufus T. hits the road where he befriends some Shoshoni Indians, encounters a space ship on the Nevada desert, and eventually hires on as a cowboy at a small ranch near Colorado Springs. After only a month, he has a run-in with the ranch foreman and finds himself on the road again this time he heads south for the warm climate of Fort Worth. There he meets a mentor, Texas Martin, who schools Rufus T. on the skills of deception, outright fraud, and how to lie when caught red-handed.

In Fort Worth, while earning a dishonest living helping Texas cheat at cards and other activities, Rufus T. gets involved in a gunfight with an old acquaintance from his past. Again, a strange power intervenes to save his life. He is ordered by the sheriff to leave town and is told, I hear Arkansas is nice this time of year. Having been kicked out of Reno, Colorado Springs and Fort Worth, our hero wanders into Arkansas where he comes upon an old Indian sitting inside a circle of animal bones; facing the morning sun in full battle dress and singing what Rufus T. believes is a kind of death chant. His name is Two Dogs; a Cherokee elder who has taken a solemn vow not to speak again until after he has met and defeated Death in battle. Rufus T. thinks the old warrior is disturbing the peace and quiet with all his caterwauling.

Angered by the appearance of a White man at his holy ceremony, a dispute erupts. However, fate has brought them together, and despite their differences they find themselves traveling the same path although neither one has a known destination. One morning they top a rise in the plain and see a small town resting peacefully in the distance. The town is Walking Horse, Arkansas, and upon seeing it a strange feeling of contentment settles over them. Two Dogs touches his heart, then moves his hand out and away, giving the Indian sign for warmth and good feeling (friendship). Rufus T., who has been schooled in the signs, sees the gesture and nods his agreement. Somehow they know this quiet little town is what they’ve been searching for. What they dont know is that this quiet little town is an experiment, established 100 years ago by extraterrestrials, and that a spaceship is on its way to earth to terminate the experiment.

A series of comical situations, which serve to describe the character and attitude of the people of Walking Horse, lead them to August 2, 1895, two days before the towns 100th birthday. Five miles outside the town is Tyler Valley, 50,000 acres of rich farm land shaped like a huge bowl flanked on three sides by mountains and across the western edge by Nolan’s Ridge. Under the cover of darkness, the spaceship drifts into position over Tyler Valley, causes it to fill with water, and submerges there to hide while the occupants go about their business. With the arrival of the Potentate aboard the spacecraft, the future of Walking Horse, Arkansas is in serious doubt. Can our hero save the town?

Real Time Pain Relief Announces Professional Bull Rider Steve Carter and Ballethnic Dance Company Co-Founder Nena Gilreath Sign Endorsement Deals

Edmond, OK (PRWEB) May 14, 2015

Real Time Pain Relief (RTPR), makers of the popular rub-on pain relief lotion and products, today announced professional bull rider Steve Twister Carter and Ballethnic Dance Company Co-Founder Nena Gilreath have signed official endorsement deals. RTPR also will be the official pain relief product of the Ballethnic Dance Company based in Atlanta. Both Carter and Gilreath know all about pain and have been long-time users of Real Time Pain Relief products before signing endorsement deals with the company.

Carter is a former airborne ranger who served with the 75th Ranger Regiment with four combat tours with Special Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2006 he was injured by a suicide bomber, given a Purple Heart, and discharged from the Army. Prior to his military service, Carter started bull riding at an early age, but gave it up to play football in high school. After completing his military service, a friend dared him to try bull riding again. Carter is now a rider with the International Rodeo Association.

Being no stranger to pain, Im convinced that without Real Time Pain Relief, the 2014 bull riding season would have ended early for me, said Professional Bull Rider, Steve Twister Carter. Its just that good. All of the Real Time Pain Relief products are made right here in the USA and Ive recommended them to friends and family for years.

Nena Gilreath is the co-founder of Ballethnic Dance Company, a professional ballet company she founded in 1990 with her husband, Waverly Lucas. She is a highly sought after and accomplished dancer, teacher and speaker. She teaches and coaches professional dancers and assists Lucas in creating Ballethnics unique style. Gilreath began her career by moving to Atlanta and joining the Ruth Mitchell Dance Theatre, later joining the Dance Theatre of Harlem, touring nationally and internationally. She also is a former member of the Atlanta Ballet. She currently serves as co-founder and co-artistic director of Ballethnic Dance Company and Ballethnic Academy of Dance.

Real Time Pain Relief is a game changer after 30 years on the stage and still twirling I am never without it, said Ballethnic Dance Company Co-Founder Nena Gilreath. I keep Real Time Pain Relief in my dance bag, my purse, and on my desk. It provides magic healing without the strong smell, concluded Gilreath.

I have tried almost every pain relieving balm available, said Ballethnic Dance Company Co-Founder, Waverly Lucas. When I skeptically tried Real Time Pain Relief for a headache – it worked. Since then I have been using it and referring it to others, stated Lucas.

What is most remarkable is that both Steve and Nena were Real Time Pain Relief customers well before they signed endorsement deals, said Real Time Pain Relief Co-Founder Ron Snodgrass. It just shows how from bull riders to ballerinas and everyone in between can benefit from Real Time Pain Relief products. We are excited to have two talented and accomplished individuals stand behind our brand who authentically believe in our products benefits and their ability to defeat many types of pain.

1st Annual Lyme Walk & Run Event a Huge Success

Stamford, CT (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Sunny skies and cool temperatures made for great conditions last Sunday at Cove Island Park as nearly 400 runners and walkers participated in Global Lyme Alliances (GLA) inaugural Lyme Walk & Run, raising nearly $ 35,000.

The 5K and 10K runs and 1-and 3-mile walks were held to increase awareness about Lyme disease and to raise funds for tick-borne disease research. The Lyme Walk and Run was a combined event created by the recent merger of Lyme Research Alliance (LRA) and Tick-Borne Disease Alliance (TBDA), to form the new Global Lyme Alliance, the largest tick-borne disease organization in the nation.

Stamford Mayor David Martin, who has lived in the community for more than 30 years, attended and told GLA hes known families struck down by Lyme disease. He stressed that ongoing tick-borne disease research is essential, stating a good diagnostic test would make a huge difference.

Race results have been posted on and The 5K first place male runner was Keith Cuttite of Norwalk. His finish time was 19:10. For the second year in a row, the first-place female runner was Dana Blanchard, of Greenwich, with a finish time of 20:34. The top 10K male and female runners were Fairfields Ed Finnegan with a time of 39:22 and Stamfords Shanna Miller, finishing with a time of 41:51.

Second place 5K male and female runners were Michael Racanello of Cortlandt Manor, NY, who finished with a time of 20:21, and Sophia Hopwood of Trumbull, 23:00. Second place 10K male and female finishers were Tim Jarica of Canton, with a time of 43:37 and Toni Blanchard, of Greenwich, 44:05.

The top 5K finishers in the youngest age 9 and under category were Glastonbury, CTs Evan Lionberger, age 9, with a finish of 31.35 and Trumbulls Rose Hopwood, also 9, who finished at 34:05.

The top fundraising award went to Fred and Orna Grand, who raised an estimated $ 7,500. Orna, the Event Chair, told the crowd that she was bitten by a tick in 2002 and it took too long before she was diagnosed. As a result, seven years ago she decided to volunteer to help educate others about tick-borne illness.

We would all like to see more accurate tests, improved treatment, increased awareness, more support and more physicians who are Lyme-literate, she said. Our mission is to continue to raise awareness and together have our voices heard in order for most needed changes to occur.

GLA Vice Chair Debbie Siciliano, who also spoke, thanked everyone who had volunteered, sponsored or came out to support Sundays event. Through the ongoing efforts of GLA, she said, we hope to conquer tick-borne disease through research and education.

Sponsors and vendors for the Lyme Walk & Run included Connecticut Tick Control, Craig Skinner Photography, Crystal Rock Water, Deb Bossio, ND, Deni Weber, Fleet Feet of Stamford, Freudigman & Billings LLC, Golds Deli, Greenwich Running Company, Honda of Westport, Jennifer Reid and Lyme Connection, Juice Plus, Kash Group, Louise Sullivan, Maritime Rowing Club, My Health First Urgent Care, Natural Awakenings, 95.9 the Fox, Orthopedics, Neurosurgery & Sports Medicine of Greenwich,The Edge Fitness Clubs, Tony Speros A Touch of Magic and the University of Bridgeport.
