February 22, 2008
Sprinkling this morning. Man it's been a wet winter. The desert is quite green and beautiful, which is a double-edged sword, because all of the quick grass will dry out in the summer and become a severe fire hazzard.

Robert uploaded the last pages of the Travel Issue this morning at 8:30. Ran up to the bank to cover some checks in the house account. We fixed a scupper on the house and I covered it with a Sue check.

Yesterday I mentioned the new Elfego Baca monument going up in Reserve, New Mexico. When I first went over there on a research trip in 2001 there wasn't anything there, not even a marker to tell visitors what happend. One man changed all of that. Henry Martinez, who owns the corner Phillips 66 made it happen.

Carole Glenn found this YouTube video showing the architectural plan for the monument and the museum. Very cool. It goes all the way around the statue, then inside, outside, with cars and trucks parked in the parking lot that hasn't been built yet. Amazing. Here's the link:

I was looking for an image in my BBB files on the server and found these three shots from last summer's art show at End of Trail in New Mexico:

That's Lady Trish Brink, at left, and our new partner, Ken Amorosano, center, with Lady Stetson at right. My good friend Jackie King Ellis (below, left) drove down from Durango, Colorado for the opening. She has modeled for me for quite some time.

And this was the moment when we unveiled my art print "Get Out Of Dodge," onstage, and when Hugh O'Brian, at left, began his mantra, "What's my cut?" Makes me cringe just remembering it. Ha.
