Just now got back to the Econolodge Motel in Moriarity (9 pm). Took the crew out to dinner at Buford's Steakhouse $120, biz account). Tony Cassanova and his pard Dennis Moore drove over just to be a part of our gig. They are driving back to Phoenix tonight and will get into Phoenix at about three in the morning. Joey Dillon had a similiar experience last night. Heavy thunderstorms knocked his flight off schedule in Boston (he did a show in New England), he was diverted to Philly, missed his connection there, rerouted through Vegas and back to Albuquerque. Rob picked him up at 2:30 in the morning and they got back here at 3:30. OF course, all of Joey's guns and equipment were lost and he had to borrow wardrobe and pistols from vendors at the show here.
We had a long day at the Founder's Ranch, with heat, a thundershower, lots of True West Maniacs, and two performances in the big tent, and a radio interview with Dakota at three. Sold quite a few books and subs, lots of complements on True West Moments. People stopping me and thanking me for giving them the real skinny. Very encouraging.
Hitting the road for Fort Sumner in the morning. My aunt and uncle, Jean and Bud Linn, have bought a ranch over there and I've never seen it.
