September 1, 2006
Man, where'd the summer go? Already September, time to go back to school. It's funny, I've been out of school for forty years but come September I always get that blast of "this year is going to be different. I'm going to have bitchin' clothes, and talk to all the pretty girls, and, oh yeh, really study." Never fails.

Forever Kidding, Forever Kidded
As for yesterday's Historical Twins postings, here a take on it: "Except for the eyes, I vote for the Linkletter link . . . he said, 'kids say the darnedest things' and BBB will always be a kid."
—Charlie Waters

When actor Peter Brown came in two days ago he left a publicity photo and signed it for the True West crew. Here it is. Peter is second from the left, next to "Sugarfoot." His co-star was John Russell, the handsome dude on the far right. Yes, that's James Garner third from right. These are all the Warner Brothers' Western stars at that time. Hard to believe there were that many Westerns on at one time, no? And that was when I went to school in September. Ha.

The Top Secret Project
Still working hard on finding an appropriate medium and color scheme for the Top Secret Project. Here's a duotone type page of sketches I did last night. Yes, that's Alchesay at the bottom, and those are Yavapai Apache girls at the top with facial tattoos. This is from a rare photo that Dale Miles (the San Carlos Apache historian) lent me. Thanks Dale!

Leaving at four to go catch a plane to Wichita. Next posting will be from Old Cowtown. "They are fighting a lonely battle there to save Old Cowtown ..."

Lodge Logs In
"Don't know the story but it sounds like someone wants to destroy history in the name of progress (an American pastime). I wish I was going with you. Good luck."
—Steve Lodge

Hey, we need a battle cry. I had lunch with Bethany Braley yesterday and she suggested we come up with something catchy like "Circle the Wagons!" or "Got Milk?" something punchy, that would go on shirts and posters. Let me know if anything hits you.

"Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification."
