The first time I ever laid eyes on Dusty Miller was in the very early 1970’s. I had a job after school pumping gas at a West Main Street service station and a car pulled in one evening after dinner with two guys dressed like cowboys in the front seat. When the driver told me to “fill it up” I’m sure I was about ready to ask him if he wanted me to water the horses too, when just then my boss came out of the station and yelled Hi Dusty! That’s all I needed to hear and I knew instantly that I was waiting on Amsterdam’s most famous cowboy, Dusty Miller…

You can read the rest of my story about this Amsterdam-born cowboy in my new book “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam Birthdays.” To order your copy, click here.
