September 18, 2003
Big day today. Having our commemorative 50th Anniversary photo taken out front. Bob McCubbin is in from Santa Fe. Marshall Trimble is coming out. Ditto for Jana Bommersbach and Daniel Harshberger. Going to pose them (all 20-something) across the front porch. John Beckett will shoot it (with himself in it, of course). The photo will appear in the November-December issue (our last 50th anniversary issue) and will run in the History of True West article.

Stock meeting at 1:30. I feel confident we will be able to deal with the issues on the table which basically are: how do we protect the stock holders who bet on this enterprise when it seemed loony, and how do we reward the people who made it the success it is today (hint: they’re not the same people).

I’ve been working on a small Doc Holliday for Mike C. of San Diego. He really wanted the title page piece from my Doc book but it is long gone and I told him I thought I could do a better one anyway. Here it is. What do you think Mike?

Dawn from Culpepper Cattle Co. in Troutdale, Oregon called yesterday and doubled their order of magazines, telling Carole, “We can't keep them on the shelves.”

Finished artwork for The Long Riders critique (Did Hollywood Ever Get It Right?). Looks kind of cool, if I don’t say so myself. I’ll post an image tomorrow.
