March 1, 2007 Bonus Blog
J.D. came down yesterday and I gave him a dozen eggs as tribute for his chicken condo work. Peaches has breeched security and has figured out how to compromise our $1,200 chain link fence. She actually takes the fence in her teeth, pulls violently on it over and over (I laughed at her at first, not realizing her demonic skills), until the bottom bends, then she squeezes under the buried guy wire like some special forces dogface. Amazing.

May issue goes out the door in an hour. Abby Pearson and Dan Harshberger both have created award winning layouts in the issue. The Billy the Kid package is quite strong.

The taping I did for The Cowboys show on the Outdoor Channel ran last night. I didn't see it but got three emails this morning raving about it. One viewer, Frank Pingleton, of Tulsa, Oklahoma wants to locate a Buntline Special that he remembers buying when he was eight-years-old. He has contacted ABC, Proctor & Gamble, Mattel and various other entities and nobody, not even Tequila, the host of the Cowboys Show, remembers this plastic replica of Wyatt Earp's Excalibur. But I do. I seem to remember Dan Harshberger having one. Nope, just called him and he doesn't remember it. I have to believe someone who reads this would know. Maybe Steve Lodge or Jeff Morey. Someone, I want to say Mattel, put out a Wyatt Earp Buntline Special replica, but it was plastic (I can just see it, and frankly it was at Dan's house. Maybe his sister Charlene had one). Frank Pingleton told me he was running across a cow pasture, and the barrel got caught between his legs and he broke his. He has been looking for a replacement ever since. If you know where Frank can find one, send him an email at:

You'll make two old cowboys happy.

And speaking of happy cowboys, Paul Hutton tells me that the only reason to watch "Buffalo Girls" is to see his beautiful wife, Tracy Lee, who is in two scenes: a wedding scene and another where Calamity Jane is leaving town. More on this later.

Samurai Comics is sneaking Frank Miller's 300 next Monday night at Harkins 101. I need to go down there, 5024 N. 7th St. tomorrow and buy some Frank Miller stuff (at 20% off) and get my ticket. See you there tomorrow morning. Theresa from Tri Star Publishing is going to meet me there to sign a whole bunch of limited edition books of mine. Evidently it was not generated by the Buckingham Books offer (see post below), but here's their address if you want to check them out:
