May 6, 2010
Thanks to a daily counter at I know this is my 3,000th posting. Quite a number. Wish I had the time back. Ha. Not really. I have very much enjoyed each and every post, even the ones Charlie Waters wrote while I was visiting the Kingman Regional Intensive Care Recreation Center. Especially those posts.

Speaking of which, for some reason, this morning, I needed to go look at the True West business timeline (see link above) and just reading some of that early TW business nightmare gave me the willies. I'm still not sure how I lived through that one (although rereading it did take the surprise out of the Kingman Regional visit. Heart attack anyone?)

Got a call from our cover boy Joey Dillon (he was on our cover and taught Josh Brolin how to spin his guns for the upcoming June release of Jonah Hex). Joey is working on a Spike TV show on the Jesse James Gang vs. Al Capone's gang and he wanted to know about Jesse's weapons and also if Mr. Howard was as deadly with a gun as Billy the Kid. Evidently someone criticized the show and said Billy the Kid was the person that should have gone up against Al's Chicago boys. You can pretty much guess what I told him (Jesse and Frank had mucho training and experience as combat raiders).

As for the show and details, here, I'll let him tell you:

"The show I was on aired last Tuesday night on Deadliest Warrior on Spike T.V. I am the firearms and Jesse James expert. Here is a link to part of the episode. The whole episode should be up in a week, and with it the thing we filmed today. 'The Aftermath' discussing it all further. Webisode only."

Had lunch today with the Rosebrook boys. Went to Tonto Bar & Grill. Sat outside on the covered patio. Beautiful day. Had the small cobb salad ($15 cash). Lots of talk about a possible True West TV show, something I have been noodling for some time (see True West business timeline, above).

"Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success."
