November 14, 2002
Still struggling with Dalton’s Coffeyville Raid. Too much stuff (good art) for five pages. Gus and I roughed in the layout and it’s too tight. So I moved around an Alamo piece in front of the book and liberated another page to add to Classic Gunfights, which will make it a six pager.

Bruce Boxleitner called last week and said he can’t do any work on our Cole Younger video project (his wife is Melissa Gilbert and she is pres of Screen Actor’s Guild). He wants to play Cole Younger, but unless it’s SAG he can’t touch it. This puts us in a weird position because we have the commitment of a Western star and yet we can’t get the project to the next level. Need to be patient, it will happen. He also told me Melissa has been filming a new ABC Western, Then Came Jones. Lots of tv Westerns in the pipeline, maybe six or seven. As many movies. Evidently, it’s a post 9.11 deal. We’ll see if they stick.

Carole and I went to lunch at El Encanto yesterday (she bought). We’re struggling with cash flow, we’re growing almost too fast, and she really takes care of us. Discussed certain employees who are in our rotating dog house.

Got a fire in the stove this morning. A bit nippy out (for Arizona, probably in the low 60s, ha.)

Kathy has been antsy about both our kids. Deena is a senior at ASU and needs to get an internship and Tommy just needs to get a job to help support his college lifestyle. It looks like both are going to happen, and that makes her very happy (and in turn it makes me happy because she’s not unhappy.)

“I have always felt that too much time was given before birth, which is spent learning things like how to breathe in and out with your husband (I had my baby when they gave you a shot in the hip and you didn't wake up until the child was ready to start school), and not enough time given to how to mother after the baby is born.”
