January 6, 2010Long day doing budgets and planning. Hard work, but worth the effort.
My son called me yesterday and said, "Adrian's is dead to me." I laughed and instinctively knew exactly what he was talking about. One of our favorite Phoenix Mexican food restaurants has always been Adrian's on McDowell Road. Ed Mell turned us on to it and many times after returning to Phoenix and landing at Sky Harbor, we have stopped at Adrian's for a welcome home meal. Evidently, someone decided to "improve" the place and changed the name to Ricky's Rocket Tacos, or some such hipster name. Anyway, T. Bell's comment was to the effect that he was never going back, but he said it like someone in the family had betrayed him, and, in a way, someone did.
Did a radio interview with KPCW in Park City, Utah this morning. Interviewed by Larren Warren and Linda Gordon. They saw me on CNN and wanted me to regale them with all things Billy the Kid. I could have phoned this interview in, and, as a matter of fact, I did.
Went home for lunch and finished a little cloud study:
Kind of dig the colors and may expand to a larger piece.
Worked late, but then so did Ken and Lucinda Amorosano, Meghan Saar, Sheri Riley, Allison Cabral, Robert Ray and Carole Glenn. Lots to do if we are going to become the best little ol' magazine in the entire West.
