August 4, 2005
Kind of fried. Hit the wall this afternoon at about 4:30. Lots of angst about the book from Robert Ray. He’s behind, tired of my last minute shenanigans. I’ve been upgrading pages, trading so-so art for better art and tweaking cutlines to add more info. Unfortunately, it’s affecting Robert’s layouts, especially ones he thought he was done with. Rather discouraging. I’ve still got three more illustrations to do tonight, but I may call it a book and let it go.

Got another blogger testimonial this morning:

"I've been reading your blog for a year or more. I found it by doing a web search for Bob Boze Bell. I liked your show on KSLX and wanted to see if you had another radio gig. Maybe one that broadcasted on the Web? What I like about your blog is just the way you do it. Could use more pix though. I don't like it when you don't post. Make 'em hungry, huh Bob?

"BTW, I saw a still from a Tom Mix film posted on the web that clearly shows the ‘leader of the outlaws’ wearing a Tom Mix-style hat while confronting Mix. Can't remember URL."

Regarding our latest poll, I got this dialogue exchange from Alan Huffines:

Meathead: "After all, we stole Texas from Mexico."

Archie Bunker: "We didn't steal it. They was only too happy to give it to
us after we beat the hell out of them in the war."

The September issue came in today and it’s a beauty. Abby did a great cover. Very proud of her. We’re wrestling with the October issue now. Problems with tophead design. Didn’t need this at this time, but here you go. It’s part of the deal.

"Seize the moment before it’s gone,
For another day begins at dawn."
