September 5, 2006
Back in the office after a long weekend. Kathy treated me to some new shirts down at Kohl's last night. Picked out five. I took her to dinner at Keg Steakhouse ($53 cash, includeds tip). On the way home, heard the flash flooding warnings on the radio. Big storm rolling in over Lone Mountain. Really a big sucker. Pulled up at a stop light at Dixielita, and the guy next to me took a photo of the rainbow with his cell phone and I thought, "Man, I want that!" And if I had one you would be looking at it right now. Soon enough—all good things in time.

The Arizona Republic ran the business piece on the magazine (True West) on Saturday. Very nice piece, but they left out Dave Daiss' name and I felt bad about that. I got a message from Wonderful Russ saying he was hurt as well, because I forgot to mention all the jokes he has told me and how much it had to have helped our financial situation. As usual Russell has a point. You can check out the article at:


In meetings all morning, but got some good things accomplished. Planning for the upcoming Tombstone event and several other deals. Also met with Faith from Big Bronco next door about teaming up with several local stores for the Cave Creek Wild West Days in November.

Yesterday, I finished my 2,000th drawing without missing a day. Actually took up two pages, here's the final two drawings (2,000 and 2,001), and they are of a village called Los Muertes (and yes, the glowing crosses were inspired by Ansel Adams' famous photograph of the New Mexican village at moonrise):
