January 23, 2008 Bonus Bog Post
My number one son, T. Charles turns 25 today. Fortunately he's in Peru where he can't do any more damage to the U.S. economy. Speaking of number one:

The Duke Still Rides Tall
"John Wayne is the only movie star to appear on every Harris Poll top ten movie star list since it first began in 1994."

If you don't believe me, check it out at Harris Poll Online.

Walked down to the lobby and had breakfast in the Laramie Room. Had the veggie skillet, orange juice and coffee. Did a batch of sketches and looked out on the cold landscape. Felt good to be snuggled in (I'm wearing a T-shirt, True West Aesthetic Department sweat shirt and a flannel shirt. ($14.50 business account)

Going down to the Buffalo Bill Museum this morning. The BBC is there filming a feature and I want to meet with the photo archivist because I heard they have some William Cody photos that have never been published. This is the great thing about my job: going to see stuff I would pay to see, but I'm getting paid to go see it.

I know what you're thinking, how do I get a gig like this? Easy. Call Trish Brink, sell some ads for us and I'll bring you along next time. I'm not kidding. Call Trish at (480) 575-1881. Tell her you want to "sell a ton of ads and go with BBB to exotic locations and charge meals to the company."

"Thanks a lot, Bob."
