Ft. Worth Public Library Painting

This "Texas Tales™" painting by Marjorie Stark Buckley is in the Ft. Worth Public Library. It was commissioned to commemorate the Texas Literary Hall of Fame. I'm standing under the plaque with my name on it. I'm still a little overwhelmed that I was chosen.

The picture is not showing up for me but congratulations, Bill. How proud you and your family must be.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Patti. It's a great picture. Trust me.

Once again, sincerest congratulations on joining the Hall of Fame, and thanks for sharing this very nice photograph (which shows fine on my system).

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Rick. And I'm even wearing a tie!

Randy Johnson said...

I'm not getting the picture either. Congrats anyway.

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Randy. Some computers must want to censor photos of me. Not that I can blame them.

iasa said...

Congratulations, and you look pretty nifty there in your tie!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, and glad you can see the tie!

NOT FOUND is all I get.

How about trying it again? I need to see this one.

NOT working for me either, which is not cool. I expect Sheriff Rhodes needs to step in and fix this or we will remain up in the air.

Bill Crider said...

I'll never understand the mysteries of cyberspace. The photo is always there when I check it. Anyway, I've replaced it and reloaded. Maybe it's there now.

Kevin R. Tipple said...

Saw it now! Very cool, sir. And again, a hearty congratulations from one of the little people.

Bill Crider said...

Glad it worked, Kevin. Little people? No such thing.

Deb said...

Congratulations--a well-deserved honor!

Jerry House said...

So, are all Texans that good-looking?

BTW, congrats!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Deb!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Jerry, and of course not!

At last. A very handsome picture and worth waiting for. And I mean the guy under it as well as the painting.

Darren said...

Am I correct that you are the first mystery writer to make the Hall?

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, Patti, and Darren, I think you're right, unless you count Sandra Brown, who's more of a thriller type.

Cap'n Bob Napier said...

No surprise to me. Congrats.

Benjie said...

And one more congratulations, Bill. None more deserving.

Thanks, Gerard.

It is a great picture! This is a well-deserved honor for you, Bill. Congratulations!

Bill Crider said...

Thanks, George. You can even see my name on the plaque behind my head.
