Outlaw Women & Two-Lane Blacktop

June 20, 2011

Got home from Colorado yesterday about noon. Pattarapan had a Father's Day lunch and dinner planned featuring homemade Thai delicacies, including Octopus Soup, Thai Cucumber Salad, Chinese Steamed Eggs and Thai Calimari. That was lunch. After a movie, Paranormal Activity II, we had a delicious dinner of Thai Style Trout with organic Fiji apples.

It was spectacular! Thanks, Ms. Pothong!

Praise for Outlaw Women
Got this hand written letter this morning:

"The July 2011 True West was the BEST ever!! What writing, what composition, what research!!! The best over-all True West of all time! Uh. . .have any more pictures of Raquel Welch???"

—Jerry West, Waxahachie, Texas

Notes From The Road
On this trip, I realized something being out on the Navajo res between Four Corners and Kayenta, on two-lane blacktop with no one ahead of me and no one behind me, and a fifty-mile view of unbroken mesas snaking along the horizon—it's very serene to me.

On the other hand, to be doing 75 on a divided highway, with an 18-wheeler on my right and a Ram Dodge in my rear view mirror, going up Camp Verde cut, is not that serene, or fun.

Roger French came out the other day to pick up his stagecoach painting. We traded: my painting for this cool hand-braided hatband:

Met some very nice people in Durango and Montrose. Had a ton of fun. Of course there are some who I run into who aren't that much fun:

"There is, indeed, no wild beast more to be dreaded than a communicative man having nothing to communicate."
