In Praise of Bugs

December 22, 2018
  My old bandmate from Tucson, Spencer B. Hopping II (B3 Hammond organ player extraordinaire, Faye Shaw And The Generation), forwarded me this stunning photograph.

Crossing Boundary Creek

It's Bert Riggall’s Self Portrait, Crossing Boundary Creek. Photo courtesy of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, V26-lll-A1-pa-7-2. Looks like a movie still, but it's the real deal, early Twentieth Century. Of course, the hat slays me. My kind of headgear.

   Speaking of slaying and being slayed:

Doc Holliday Mono Print:

 "Dawn of the Dying #6"

Doc Holliday Mono Print:

 "You're A Daisy If You Do!"

   These two mono prints will be in my upcoming show at Cattletrack Arts Compound in Scottsdale on January 24, 2019.

   Today would have been Charles Richard Waters 71st birthday. In my experience, the smartest guy in any room. We called him "No Way Charlie" and "Bugs" but he had a big heart and great laugh. He passed four years ago. Still miss him.

  1. Boze...of course, Charlie's sister was a student teacher at Catalina High School during my senior year in Tucson. Great lady and I hope she doesn't remember my shenanigans while she instructed us!
