Bypassed And Left Behind

March 20, 2014
   Went home for lunch and whipped out the last painting of the last signature:

Daily Whipout, "Bypassed!"

   "We went chasing ghosts until the ghosts chased us," is the subhead. I've lived long enough to witness the passing of two or three phases of Western migration and development. Somewhat depressing. Ha.

   Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, I don't have room for some pictures I certainly would like to run, like this one:

July 28, 1979, Pioneer, Arizona

Or this one, of my grandmother Minnie making cookies. She, of course, is half of the inspiration for "Not-So-Gentle Tamer" and it's such a sweet photo. To think of her snapping the necks off of chckens is a vision to behold!

We have a couple days to try and shoe horn in some more stuff, so maybe it will make it in. How confident am I of this? I'd like to say I'm as confident as Angel:

"If a horse has four legs and I'm riding it, I think I can win."
