April 6, 2007
Robert Ray, Abby Pearson and Meghan Saar and I worked late again last night, finishing several projects that needed to go out. This after getting the June issue out the door at two. Lots of last minute changes and tweaks. Very successful day.

Now, I need to shift gears and get all of the artwork done for Classic Gunfights, Volume III which goes to the printer a week from today. Robert Ray is home working on the layouts for that today, and I'm going to put in a hopefully successful three days in my studio this weekend.

I finally got photos back from my mother's funeral. They were on Deena's camera and she uploaded the images last week on Snapfish. I ordered a batch and they finally arrived, via snail mail, last night. Here's a good illustration of the cultural split in my family. The top photo is of the pall bearers and as you can clearly see, the Kingman cowboys certainly stand out and have their stance down. Ha. Left to right: Charlie Waters, Deena Bell, Billy Weir, Billy Hamilton, Bud Linn and Robert Jerl Stockbridge. The bottom photo is of the service, and Lou Cady, Jr. picked out the casket. That's Radar Hill in the background.

After the ceremony I took Deena and Kathy over to pay a visit to my father's grave. Several years ago, I stopped at a K-Mart and bought a miniature '57 T-Bird and placed it on his grave. It was still there (you can see it in the close-up).
