November 21, 2002
We’re growing so fast it’s giving us cash flow fits. Carole and I worry about it, going over the spreadsheets and P&Ls, fretting, mulling and moping. Bob Brink comes in, takes a quick look at the numbers and puts it all in perspective: “You’ve come a long way from last year Kid,” he says sitting on the couch in my office. “We are going to be fine.” Amazing what that calm confidence does for me. I feel like a little kid in a fun house and my dad is holding my hand and saying, “Calm down it’s just trick mirrors.”

We are still trying to determine if the shotgun in the new Western Monte Walsh is the same model as the shotgun Carey Seaman used at Coffeyville against the Dalton Gang. Ted got ahold of Tom Selleck’s office yesterday and they confirmed it is an 1887 Winchester lever-action shotgun that Shorty (George Eads) uses in the movie. Tom Selleck himself is supposed to call us today. Everyone is thrilled about this, especially the women.

Gus and I are still struggling with layout on Classic Gunfights. Printed out what we have and did sketches and moved stuff around. I woke up this morning with several ideas on how to make it work.

Gus and Meghan finished the javelina piece for High Sonoran Style magazine and Abby did a quick half page ad to plug Christmas stuff. Tom will pick up this morning.

Took off a tad early and went up to Bashas’ for groceries ($78 house account). Came home and cooked a pasta-salmon dinner for Kathy. She came home at 6:30 and we had a nice meal with wine. I’m usually such a selfish little javelina, I occassionally just want to pretend to be a good husband and partner.
