July 20, 2007
Netflix sent me "The Big Stampede", 1932, starring John Wayne so I popped it in my computer at work to see if I could poach a scene or two for art reference. Got some good riding stuff. Here's a prophetic scene at the beginning. Which came first? The horse's name that appealed to Wayne, or Duke naming the horse after himself?

Bob Pugh at Trail to Yesterday Books put a "highly recommended" tag on Classic Gunfights, Volume III and his orders are going through the roof. He called again today to order more books. Got an email from someone else who wanted his phone number (he's not online, nor does he have a website). You have to reach Bob the old-fashioned way at:

(520) 293-1260

Got two postcards from Kathy in Chile. They leave tomorrow, heading up the coast towards Peru, where she'll stop and see Thomas Charles, then on to Nicaragua to see me.
