January 20, 2003
The TV show I worked on runs this Wednesday. Unsolved History (History Channel) explores the Shootout at the OK Corral. They re-enacted it and then used modern police forensics to try and solve some of the big questions. For example, we know Doc Holliday used a shotgun on Tom McLaury and we know the location and size of the wound from the autopsy report. On the show they took a side of beef and a shotgun and by firing into it at different distances they determined how far away Holliday was when he fired (hint: it’s farther than normally believed).

Nice quiet day at home. Kathy, Peaches and I went for a long walk on West side of the creek. Huge homes going in over there. Land going for $140K. We paid $12K (and thought it was too much).

Went to Albertson’s for groceries ($113 house debit), came home and made salmon and salad.

Saw Barry Friedman at the High Noon Auction on Saturday. He was the co-creator of Bunkhouse Capers on the old KDKB back in the seventies. He now writes comedy in Hollywood. Has written for Seinfeld, Phyllis Diller and others. He has written a book on Navajo Rug collecting. I bought one ($40 cash), then stopped at Barnes & Noble on the way home and bought a book on Pop Art ($32 Sue debit). It inspired me, but had zero luck with assigned art. Need to find my path. I feel like I’m walking through the toolies.
