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
Woke up in a snowstorm on the eastcoast. Kathy and I are visiting our kids. Got in two cars and headed north. Made the driver stop at certain art museum because I am a huge fan of a hometown boy, John Singer Sargent. I don't want to give away the city but here we are at the museum:
Afterwards, we drove around the Johns Hopkins University where my daughter-in-law graduated from with honors then ended up at a Korean BBQ joint (Joung Kak) in the Charles North neighborhood:
Great spread of exotic food and had two Cass beers so I was having fun:
Quite cold out, low thirties plus a 40-mph-wind off the ocean (I won't say which one). Ended up playing an old family game: Let's stop for a shot at every bar on the right. We actually cheated so we could stop here:
Of course, we were quite obnoxious in here (Tex Mex in Arizona?! Pah-leeze!). The women started dancing:
We ended up on Baltimore Street not far from city hall at a place called "Larry Flint's Hustler Club". Really enjoyed the artwork in there. Kind of a slow night, but saw plenty of eastcoast, female plumbing.
