March 15, 2006
I posted two sets of photos from the snow. The second set of photos (see below) features Elephant Butte from two angles, looking quite Alps-like. This is the view to the north of our home. Good shadows in the center one with the saguaros poking up into the unlikely snow-scape. Almost a painting without even lifting a brush, eh?

Wonderful-Mad Going Brokeback
The bottom photo will take some “splainin’.” On Monday I met Wonderful Russ and Mad Coyote Joe at Keg Steakhouse for lunch ($54.45, I bought, plus Joe left $10 tip). Some have called our get-togethers the chapter meeting of the Zane Brothers: much laughter and solving of life takes place. Before the waiter came over I pulled up my camera and they got cozy. Maybe too cozy. Check out their websites at:

Fellow Mucous classmate, Dorian Trayhan has booked me for a Kingman writer’s conference in May. Here’s the link if you want to attend:

Paul Hutton (he’s the guy who wrote the great piece on Kit Carson in the previous issue), flew in last night and came down this morning for breakfast at Flapjack Deli ($22, Paul bought). He’s curating a Billy the Kid show in Albuquerque and we went out to my studio afterwards and he picked a dozen of my paintings for the show. Very exciting.

Great Idea for A Special Issue
I would really like to get a book of the everyday life, day to day, of a typical cowboy. What he does, eats, enjoys, his horse, belongings, even the kind of clothes he wears
