If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a magazine or how crazy my personal life is, be sure to read the behind-the-scenes peek at the daily trials and tribulations of running True West. Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Some of it is enlightening. Much of it is embarrassing, but all of it is painfully true.
In addition to this current journal, my early journal entries show the rocky road and money lost in the True West Business Timeline.
Bob's biography - The Unvarnished Truth
June 18, 2012
Got home yesterday afternoon after 17 days on the road. Saw some new country, met some interesting people, learned some history I didn't know and came home with some great memories. For me it doesn't get much better than that.
I have to say, of all the places I visited there is one region, actually a county, that is certainly the most cantankerous of all the places I visited. Here's a couple clues:
Home, Home On The Strange
Where the deer and the antelope are prey.
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
Oh, and I know this isn't part of the song, but their storms are full of ash.
"One of the reasons I live in this county is because there are no synagogues or mosques."
—A resident of Catron County, New Mexico who shall remain nameless
