Needles In The Rearview

October 9, 2017
   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

    BBB..... PLEASE publish a hardcover of your Wild Bill book!
    I don`t want Hickok looking ...'soft' to the Hardcover Earp, Holliday & Billy The Kid volumes on my shelf.

    Hey--I`ll advance-pay for a Hardcover !
