August 25, 2006
The Top Secret Writer and I are secluded in a mountain top retreat, where we met with the son of the man who baptised the hero of our Top Secret Story. Lutheran pastor Arthur Alchesay Guenther has great stories and speaks flawless Apache. I teared up over his description of Alchesay's last words, and was concerned about my estrogen levels, until on the way home The Top Secret Writer confessed that he too was "a tad misty eyed." The Top Secret Writer is also wearing his new reconditioned True West cap.

More rain, nice and cool up here. We worked last night until almost one in the morning. Exciting stuff. Can't wait to show off some of the efforts.

Real Men Save Cowtowns
"According to the Wichita Eagle article [link is on yesterday's post], I see you and Michael Martin Murphey are part of the driving force in the fight to save Wichita's Old Cowtown. It took real men to shape the West. It takes real men today to stand up and save it for future generations. I'm proud to know both you and Murph. Thank God some people are blessed with wisdom and a vision to go with it."

"The happiest excitement in life is to be convinced that one if fighting for all one is worth on behalf of some clearly seen and deeply felt good."
—Ruth Benedict
