Miserable out. Swamp cooler is barely working. May have to switch over to air conditioner (most Arizona homes have both types of coolers for survival purposes). Went home for lunch to work on painting ideas for Endurance of The Horse coverage in the next issue. Still wrestling with it.

"This is for Bob 'bose' Bell! As a western historian, I`d like to ask you this! what ever happened to decor that littered the walls of the homes, hotels,solloons, etc.The rifles, paintings, etc. I realize that the studios would have maintained them but what about after the studios were gone. I realize that this might be unanswerable but if Bob 'bose' Bell didn`t know than no one would. I love your moments on the western channel. I feel like I`m closer to the actual west through you."
—Your friend Roy T.
Well, half the stuff ended up at my house, and the other half ended up at Professor Paul Hutton's house in Albuquerque.
Just joking. There's actually some other stuff around.
Seriously you'd be amazed at how much quality artifacts, decor, rifles, paintings, etc. have been saved and is in private collections. If your don't believe me, check out these auction houses:
You will be amazed. Or call Hutton and pay the long dollar. Your call.

"History is about life. It's awful when the life is squeezed out of it and there's no flavor left, no uncertainties, no horsing around. It always disturbed me how many biographers never gave their subjects a chance to eat. You can tell a lot about people by how they eat, what they eat, and what kind of table manners they have."
— David McCullough, author of 1776 and many other historical novels
