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
July 20, 2012
Last night, Kathy and I had four ears of Froggy Hauan corn which Froggy himself drove out to Arizona with. Man, there is nothing like fresh corn on the cob from Thompson, Iowa.
Spent all morning working on a painting for Outrageous Arizona. Wanted to do a Mexican Chiquita with an eye catching peasant dress.
Got the dress from a show the Autry put on a couple years ago. Of course, I put a sugarloaf sombrero on her head just because I love the damn things.
"Corn sex is complicated."
—Elizabeth Kolbert, in the New Yorker explaining how difficult it is for corn to duplicate ("Corn's female organs are sheathed in a sort of vegetable chastity belt—surrounded by a tough, virtually impenetrable husk.")
