November 3, 2011My neighbors are at the Grand Canyon and, before they left, they dutifully put out their recycling bin and their garbage bin, side by side, for pickup today. Unfortunately, scavengers—most likely javelinas or commission-only-real-estate agents—tipped over the garbage can and spread a ton of garbage over a very wide area. So, like a good neighbor, I was there and went over before I came into work and picked up the whole dang deal.
So Fred Nolan sniped at my title for this study ("Sheepherder and His Faithful Dog") asking if it took me very long to come up with that title. So I asked him to come up with something better and he replied, without hesitation, "Down Boy".
Dang, that is funny. He's such a card. Makes me ashamed I didn't think of it.
Marshall Trimble, Jana Bommersbach and myself are going to do a dress rehearsal for our True Arizona round robin presentation tonight at the Kerr Cultural Center. This is the test run for our upcoming TV show about Arizona's centennial. Going to be fun. Ken is taping it so we can critique it.
Juni Fisher is in town and we're jamming on a new cowgirl character. Got some good stuff going. Sketches and snippets to follow.
