July 18, 2007
Yesterday as I went out to the end of the driveway to get the paper, the sky above Continental Mountain had a pre-sunrise glow of delicate orange. The image stuck in my head and this morning I whipped out the following study from memory:

The sky was actually more rosy than this and Ratcliff Ridge is covered with way more saguaros, but I kind of like it. The rider, of course, is on his way to the premiere of the Top Secret Project, which launches on July 26th.

If you couldn't make out George Washington making out with a pig in yesterday's posted painting, here is a clearer map of the two (top image). Now go back and see if you can't see them smooching.

"I dreamed last night George Washington was making out with a pig."

"A Capitalist Pig?"

"No, just a regular pig in lower case letters."

Got a three-page diatribe letter, criticizing our coverage of The Battle of Big Dry Wash. David Ricker of Payson criticizes our history, Gus's maps and my I.Q. Ha. So we scanned the letter and emailed it to Dr. Sam Palmer and he spent all night last night answering each accusation. I'll post the whole thing later today.

J.D. and I drove down to Home Depot this morning to buy a mist system for the chickens ($43-something, house account). We're going to install it tonight when it gets cooler.
