May 5, 2005
Last night Kathy and I met Deena down at the Superpumper, just off the 101 and we all drove over and picked up Mother Radina and took her out to Earl's on Peoria for her birthday dinner (she's 81). Brad, Carole, EJ and Mercedes joined us and we had the banquet room all to ourselves and had a good old time. I had two horni margaritas and the chile colorado ranchero steak. Brad made the chile colorado himself. Quite tasty. Got home around nine. Long day. Dogs all pissed off. Wouldn’t even look at us (I know, I know, they’re so spoiled).

Today I finished three scratchboards for the July issue, tweaked my editorial, adding a bit on draw-string shirts being authentic (our cover cow-boy and several of the McCubbin photos inside feature this unique style, that never gets any play in Hollywood movies). Also went up and had a facial that Kathy had paid for. That was kind of fun. Forgot to eat lunch. Worked until around 5:30. Melrose and I are driving down to Tombstone in the morning at six. This is for the BBC taping. They’re doing a big series on the American West. Going straight down and coming back the same day. Have to stop in Tucson for Mexican food of course.

Porn star Jenna Jameson and her husband have bought a 10,000 square foot mansion in Paradise Valley. Six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. I guess when you’re in porn you need eight bathrooms. Just thought you'd like to know.

Speaking of pornographic size houses, a 9,000 square foot monster burned just south of Rancho Manana last night about 4:30. We all ran out on the porch to watch the smoke, trying to figure out where it was. When I drove down to meet Kathy I met all the fire trucks coming up from Phoenix. There were at least three fires yesterday around the Valley and the wind and the drying grass has everyone worried.

A good friend of mine just got a new sportscar. I'm so jealous.
