December 9, 2002
Had a very nice weekend. Took a big nap yesterday. Really felt good.

Peaches made it safely home from her coyote sprint yesterday. Her speed has saved her on numerous occasions. Bit as she gets older, well, I don’t think we can take her out on long walks.

Chis Simcox is in the news down in Tombstone. He bought the Tombstone Tumbleweed newspaper and has created a Civil Homeland Defense effort for local vigilantes to stop illegal immigration at the border. In today’s paper is a photo of him walking into the O.K. Cafe for a meeting yesterday (see photo). This is the cafe where Bob McCubbin and I first discussed buying True West back in 1998.

Cleaned half my studio, need to finish this week. I’m trying some new techniques for Classic Gunfights and I’ll share those tomorrow.

“[Country Music’s] essential message is that life is difficult and so are most of the people we meet, including those we marry.”
