Still overcast and wet out. Went for a bike ride with the dogs at about seven. Cement trucks, dump trucks and back hoes everywhere, all with their incessant backup tooting. Building going on everywhere around us. One construction site north of us is digging up so much dirt they are offering it to anyone. I caught Bev the Barber last night opening the Barro’s gate so a dump truck could unload two loads of filtered dirt. The neighbors across the street have redone their entire driveway with the stuff.
Meanwhile at the office, Dave Daiss is putting in pavement at the entrance to the True West World Headquarters, and another crew is building a new road up the steep hillside behind our building (I’m looking out the window at the stakes and red flags and can hear the dozer’s grinding and tooting, as well.

Wendell Havatone’s CD
“That was beautiful. I played it for everybody in my office and they all thought it was great. Of course I had to tell all about Wendell and his athletic escapades. I told them about the Exits and all the school dances and I'm sure they all started to get bored, but I didn't care. It was my memories and I hope I never forget them, I'll cherish them as long as I can. Thank you for being a part of them.”
