May 6, 2006
Steve from Grant's Appliance came out yesterday and fixed our coolers for the summer run ($305, house account). Very nice and cool in the studio this morning. Went for a bike ride with the dogs at eight. Getting almost too warm to go this late.

Johnny Weinkauf resent me the measuring tape to measure my foot for my new custom BBB boots. I had to call him and have him walk me through it. High instep, low instep, ball, it's all too confusing to me. It was funny, with him in Kerrville, Texas, trying to tell me, in my office with my shoes off, holding the tape measure in my hands with the phone in the crook of my neck. Here's the photo of me and John in March of 1980 when I got my first boots.

Worked until 9:30 last night on Whambam illustrations. I'm worried now that I don't have enough room (6 pages) to tell the story. Building an article is like building a house. You gather all of the materials, lay the foundation and it looks like you've got tons of room for everything, then when you put the walls up it looks too little, you panic, you think it's way too small, then you put the roof on and it's amazing how much will fit in the sucker and when others come into your house they marvel how right it seems.

This also is true of doing a book, a True West Moment, no doubt a movie and probably an album.

Went up at ten and dropped off recycling, and yoga, then farmer's market and bought some New River tomatoes ($5.10 cash) and big boy onions ($2 cash) and came home to make Cinco de Seis tacos.
