December 19, 2005
Great day yesterday at home. Had Deena, Betty Radina and Carole Glenn over for chicken fried steaks, mashed potatoes, green beans and salad. South African wine, Merlot, 1999. Kathy cooked. We only have it once a year and yesterday was the day.

We’ve got a new poll up. Were Apaches terrorists? Yes/No

After numerous Google dead-ends I finally heard from my old radio partner David K. Jones. He’s still in Florida and here’s his Email:

How the hell are you? I miss your old cowboy ass. I hope things are going "westernly" for you. (You know, you have taken all the fun out of finding pennies on the ground for me!) We're alive and well. Tera is teaching and doing "stuff," Ed is surfing everyday regardless of weather or waves and on his way to getting a full scholarship. He wants to be a marine meteorologist...that can't be worse than being a dj. Scott is living with a charming young woman, working at Beach Pizza and getting ready for some college (finally). I'm doing voice overs full time out of my home studio. I'm working with about 80 radio stations and lots of other agencies. Lots of varied work. Yesterday I picked up a contract for voice work for a University in Nigeria, boat manufacturer in Fort Lauderdale and an instructional film for the US Navy. (I forgot to mention to them I'm against the war...I'm just a whore.)

Here’s his website:

and his email:

He also gave me this link to a Jones & Boze artifact:

Here’s a belated one from the geezer gams department:
I recently completed Marshall Trimble's Arizona History class. His vast knowledge and humor made the class a pleasure. A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of your blog to show me a side of Marshall that I never thought I would see. I was shocked to view my esteemed history teacher posing in this way - next to someone who clearly has better legs! This must have caused quite a stir when it first appeared. I can see you two are light years ahead of Hollywood who has just now released "Brokeback Mountain". You should shoot an Arizona Historians calendar without delay. I'm sure it would be profitable. You might have the best gams, but Marshall looks mighty fine in yellow. Sincerely, from someone else who grew up along Route 66 (in Illinois),
