Traveled all day yesterday, driving home from the Lone Pine Film Festival. Drove right by Olive Oatman's Mojave home:
Daily Whip Out: "Olive Oatman On The Colorado"
That would be just north of a distinctive Arizona landmark, below. Her Mojave home was actually on the California side (at the current site of Needles, the town).
The Needles south of Topock Marsh
This is a sight, she woke up to every day for four years. It's another four hours from Needles to my front door. Needed to get back on Sunday so I can finish up the book on this guy:
Daily Whip Out: "Wild Bill Bust"
Worked all day today on the layouts with Robert Ray. Locked down a ton of pages, with about 17 holes to fill, Got about ten days to finish. Going to be tight, but it's going to be mucho groovy.
I am fond of saying the problem in this world is everyone is about half right, but this quote says it better:
"The world is divided into people who think they are right."
—Old Vaquero Saying
