May 1, 2007
Thomas Charles, Kathy and I drove out to Peoria last night to have dinner with the Radinas at Earl's Fine Foods. Kathy's sister Debbie is interested in moving to the Dominican Republic, so T. Bell had much advice on where to locate, etc. The world traveler leaves in June for Peru, where he will be for two plus years, serving in the Peace Corp. Had the ribeye special ($9.95, total bill for eight was eighty-something, Kath bought).

News From The Front Lines
"As a True West Maniac (# 767) I just want to express my appreciation for the book reviews and ads for western books in True West. Over the past 10 months I have bought 6 western books solely because I saw them in TW. (I just yesterday ordered Cowtown Wichita from the New Mexico Press because of the ad in this months issue and last month ordered The Greatest Stagecoach Robberies of the old west & Greatest Train Robberies of the old west). I enjoy western reading and I hope you will continue and expand your section on new and old classic western book. Also, because of an ad in a 2003 issue (About the time I found TW and started to read it) I joined Cowboy FastDraw. It is now the hobby of my life and gives me a great reason to travel the west from Kentucky."

Dave Daiss is up from the ranch and brought me this photo of he and actor William Sanderson (left, holding a True West issue which he had Dave autograph) taken at the Steak Out Grill in Sonoita, Arizona. Mr. Sanderson, who is visiting friends in the area, played the sleazy hotel owner on Deadwood, and also had a part in Lonesome Dove, among numerous other gigs.

I'm worried we have spent too long on the Top Secret Project and, as of today, have little to show for the effort. Woke up this morning and made myself a vow to redouble my efforts. Really is gnawing at me. On the way home last night, Kathy asked T. Bell and I what our biggest fears are, and mine is that I won't live long enough to finish The Top Secret Project!
