A Day of Joy And The Kid In The Diamond Star Halo

 December 25, 2020

   Woke up to the sound of gentle rain. No deadlines, no urgent editorial or illustration needs. That alone, is a delightful Christmas gift for this Kingman boy. And speaking of alone, we were a good family and stayed apart this year to be safe, so it's just me and the Radina Kid. 

   And speaking of the Kid.   

   On a day like today, I just felt like building a fire in the studio stove and scratching around.

1. You believe in Santa Claus

2. You don't believe in Santa Claus

3. You are Santa Claus

4. You look like Santa Claus

  1. Bob Boze Bell,
    Long time reader of TW and lots Billy books. Thought I was done and over the Kid and then in the Dec issue you come up with a stinger. So if what you say is true, that Billy was in the Maxwell house to see Pete's younger sister, then all the letters authenticating and documenting provenance of the famous knife are somewhat false? He was not holding the knife when killed because he was not carving/cutting a piece of meat? Help me out here. Thanks. S. Barton
