October 31, 2007
Halloween at the office. Every year I fret about this and every year Kathy saves my bacon. Woke up at 6:05, grumbling. She went into Tommy's room and got me his clown outfit. I'm wearing it now, in the office.

Got a newspaper this morning but didn't wash my face (until later), or get anything worthwhile done (on the priority list) in the 4 AM to 7 AM zone. Did finish my six sketches before I left the house in the clown outfit. Several neighbors waved at me, laughing, and I kept thinking to myself, "why are they all laughing?" then, looked in the mirror and saw the pointy hat with the ball on the end, and realized why.

News From The Front Lines
"I just picked up your current copy of True West and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It also made me remember that I have several back issues from 1953-1956. They are a real hoot to read the articles and see the advertisements. Are they currently worth anything to a collector?"

Yes, Marcia, some of those early issues, especially in the first year, are fetching $25 to $50. And, our Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp issues from 2001 and 2002 are going for $200 each. The moral: save them.
