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.

Last Thursday was Kathy's birthday so we surprised her on the morning of June 7 as we drove into Kearney, Nebraska on the BLT. I asked her to look for a cafe for breakfast and as we drove into town she saw this:
After we sprang this surprise on her, we all attended a Zumba class at the Kearney YMCA, paid for by Deena Bell. We actually have video of that and I'll post that when I get off the road next week.
Meanwhile, I couldn't have done it alone. Had the great help of the gals at Miller Signs in Kearney. Here they are with Kathy after the big surprise:
Some real smart, talented Kearney cuties they are.
From Kearney, we motored on to Lake Okoboji, Iowa, where we enjoyed an evening boat ride. Meanwhile, just prior to this we had a great birthday dinner at Estes Park, cooked by Pattarapan. We ate on the deck of our private cabin and were serenaded by a lightning strike which struck so close there was no delay at all. As we sat there we felt like the lone ranger.
