More Rain Clouds More Things to Be Thankful For

 December 7, 2022

   Lots of dramatic weather in the last several days. This is from a couple nights ago:

Late light over the Triple B Bunkhouse

   Sometimes it pays to get up early to take the garbage can out to the end of the driveway. Sunrise over Ratcliff Ridge this morning.

   Out for my daily morning walks I spied these new rain clouds over Black Mountain.

   Drove out to Fountain Hills yesterday to take a photo for the Feb.-March issue of True West on What History Has Taught Me.

Recently retired Carole Compton Glenn,

and her trusty dog, Jake, out for a walk

near their home in Fountain Hills, Arizona.

   I have been researching our best selling covers over the past eight years and this cover, from April, 2016, is head and shoulders above anything we have done. Why do you think that is?

   I'm also researching the new scholarship on Jesse James from Michelle Pollard (see, this blog Dec. 2nd)

Brad Pitt as Jesse James and Casey Afleck
as Robert Ford in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (2007)

   And, I have to say, every extra day I am alive on this planet the more I appreciate these two crazy kids.
