September 13, 2006 Bonus Blog
Yesterday, Lou Cady, Jr. borrowed my Ranger and drove back into the Beast for another archery lesson at Straight & Arrow, an archery store and range at 29th Ave. and McDowell. So I was on foot. Had a massage at four with Christie Wilcox and she said to me, "You seem rather tight," and I said, "My mother's here."

From my perch at Black Mountain Gym, I furiously sketched the tall booger, then when I got home I laid in the washes and color scheme I remembered. Here's that image:

Going home for lunch today, then bringing back Lou and my mom for the True West tour. Lou is anxious to meet Carole Glenn because he was impressed with her helping him book his ticket from Cody. They go home tomorrow.
