Got back from Flag at about three yesterday. Picked up Uno at Doggie Daycare and brought him home and gave him a bone. He sat out in the breezeway on this throne and shot me this look.
Is it a "Thank you" look? Or, a "Don't Think This Let's You Off The Hook" look? If I had to guess, probably somewhere in the middle.
Dogging It, Part II
It's been on a long quest with this subject matter:
Daily Scratchboard Whip Outs:
"The Real Women of The Wild West"
And, getting closer on the teaser copy as well:
Daily Whip Out: "Grace & Grit"
Here's How Jana Puts It In The Foreword
"We know all about the bandits and bad boys, the gunfighters and goons, but not the women who held it all together with grit and spit. The reality is plain: there never would have been a settled West without the women—Native and Mexican women here first; Black and White women who followed--all settling the vast, unknown and scary lands beyond the Mississippi River.
"But they've never got their due. If they're mentioned at all, it's as whores or tough-living Calamity Janes.
"Here's the good news: You don't have to dig deep to find remarkable stories of the remarkable women of the West—you just have to care enough to dig.
"We cared enough. Meet some of the women who should be in every history book."
“Well-behaved women seldom make history.”
