It was so nice out last night we sat out in the front yard and enjoyed the sunset. Here's Uno looking the other way, with that look that says, "Nyeh, if you seen one, you've seen 'em all."
Speaking of the puppy with the crazy back end, Uno went crashing through the studio a couple weeks back with his wagging tail and knocked over this True West Shadow Box we inherited from the Stillwater, Oklahoma TW crew. Uno broke the glass and the very first issue of True West is starting to curl up on the edges.
A Broken Shadow Box
Well, of course, eventually it will all be over. When Professor Martin Summerness introduced me to the NAU Beginning Journalism Class several weeks ago, he mentioned I had done work for National Lampoon and Playboy. He got this off of my bio, but it suddenly dawned on me both publications—giants when I was just starting out—are kaput in terms of a print version. So, that we are still standing as a magazine is a miracle to me. And even if it all ended tomorrow I would be so thankful for the long run. We're coming up on twenty-two years and counting.
"All things must pass."
