January 12, 2011Went home for lunch and whipped out three studies (I was waiting for the termite guy and he finally showed at about 2:15). Meanwhile, Kathy is hosting bunco tonight (everytime I hear this term I am reminded of Doc Holliday who, I seem to remember, was branded a "bunco steerer" in Las Vegas, New Mexico in 1880, which I assume means someone who suckers suckers into playing a crooked game of bunco?).
Here is one of the studies I did, which I call Civil War General:
Looks a bit like General Crook, but not quite. He looks like someone though.
Meanwhile, on the drive back from Ajo yesterday. Carole drove and I looked at the moonscape to the west of the highway. Really dramatic country down there. This is my impression of that expanse:
There was a ranch out among the mesquite and we could just make out the roofline among the palo verdes. That's a quick take on that.
News From The Front Lines
Carole Glenn keeps me posted on the phone calls from time to time to give us a good idea of where our readers are coming from. Here's a call she took today:
"Mrs. Griffith called to check on a gift sub today and told me that her husband loves TW and keeps up with you online. They live in Monroe, NC."
"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning."
