Looking Back Looking Forward

 August 29, 2022

   I like to get out on the road no later than six with Uno when we do our morning walk and sometimes I am rewarded for it, like this sweet view to the north.

Rise & Shine

   Had some fun in the studio this afternoon.

Daily Whip Out: "Latina Santina"

   Not even sure what that means but I like the rhythm of it.

  Someone just told me Wild West magazine has reduced their yearly output to four issues a year, from eight. Dang.

(from the New Yorker)

   Ouch. We are being reduced to a joke, but, on the other hand, a pretty funny one. Ha.

   Dave Daiss asked us if we'd put together a poster for the Oriental Saloon in Tombstone, so Dan the Man whipped this out.

   Meanwhile, Thomas Charles and I are doing an exercise in learning better plotting. The assignment is to choose 6 books, or stories, and take them apart and study them. The very first story I read this morning was written by this guy.

"No Apache, no matter if he's drunker than seven hundred dollars, is going to leave a trail that plain—that is, unless he wants to."
—Elmore Leonard, "Trail of The Apache"
