June 15, 2008
Last night at the WWA Awards Dinner (black tie optional) True West magazine won the coveted Lariat Award for our "Outstanding support of the Western Writers of America" and our steadfast efforts to keep the Old West alive. Really a vindication for our staff for their nine years of hard work. Believe it or not, I received a standing O as I went to the podium. Very touching. I made a vow to make everyone in the room rich and famous. Not sure I can do that, but we're going to give everyone in the WWA that opportunity with even more exposure in the future. A great group of people.

Today, Kathy and I delivered 15 Billy the Kid paintings (plus one John Wesley Hardin) to the Arts Prescott Gallery on Whiskey Row in the mile high city. It was even hot up there (91 degrees at three). My old U of A friend, Janet Childress, curated the show and after hanging the paintings, we went and had dinner at an Italian restaurant around the corner ($75, Sue account). Got home late, went right to bed. Long weekend, but fun.
