March 9, 2004
Went down to the creek at 7:30 this morning and got my 10 rocks. Dogs really scampered. Buddy Boze Bell is in trouble for chasing three pregnant mares down the hill. We’ve had to keep him leashed up during the day, and so far he is being quite understanding about it.

Really nice out now. It was in the eighties yesterday. Sunny and warm today.

Got a new poll up. Which of the following played the largest role in the defeat of America's Indians?

Buffalo destruction
U. S. Army
Manifest Destiny

Bailing into Classic Gunfights, Volume II this morning. Top secret theme. Hired a well-known researcher yesterday to keep everything kosher and accurate.

Also got an e-mail from Chip DeMann in Northfield, Minnesota and they want to feature my outlaw artwork at this year’s Defeat of Jesse James Days (Sept. 10-14). Huge event. They get 200,000 plus annually. The art show will be at one of the colleges (I think at St. Olaf College). I may fly into Des Moines and visit my cousin, then drive up through the Iowa farmland and visit my Norwegian aunts and uncles in Thompson, Forest City and Osage. Not many left.

Worked out logistics on taping new True West Moments for the Westerns channel. Jeff Hildebrandt is flying down from Denver next Thursday and they are filming an interview with Jack Palance, then we will do our best to knock out another six to 12 TW Moments. I’m planning on doing some gonzo ones, utilizing all my Jones & Boze radio experience. Usual Man On The Street stuff. We’ll see what happens. We’ll tape the teleprompter segments, with pre-written scripts, on Saturday. I called yesterday and demanded Dori Randall for makeup. She did me on the first go-round and I actually looked decent. I don’t know exactly what she did, but I want her to do it again.

Need to get serious about artwork. I’m planning on committing to a daily quota, just like with my rocks.
