Bacanora From Sonora & Sympathy for The Drummer

 February 25, 2023

   Yesterday, I had a distinguished visitor to the Triple B Art Studio and that is the noted Nogales historian, Greg Scott, who waxed poetically on all things historical from his neck of the woods (Badger Clark, Thomas Rood & Caborca artisans, for starters).

   He is also distinguished because he brings me bacanora (a Sonoran delight).

A Bacanora shot glass put to good use.

   It was also a bit chilly out so I had a rip-roarin' fire going in the Big Bug Creek Wood Burning Stove:

Stayin' warm and stokin' hot!

   As you may know, I am somewhat partial to Southwestern headgear, but my good friend, Carole Glenn, sent me a link to some hat styles from around the world and I especially dig this one.

Great hats are worldwide!

   Had lunch today with Tom Vickers and his wife Victoria at Tonto Bar & Grill which is on the Rancho Manana property and we had some good laughs. Tom was a writer for Rolling Stone magazine back in the day, and he turned me on to one of the zaniest book titles I have ever heard:

Sympathy for The Drummer

   "Sympathy for the Drummer: Why Charlie Watts Matters" is both a gonzo rush—capturing the bristling energy of the Rolling Stones and the times in which they lived—and a wide-eyed reflection on why the Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World needed the world's greatest rock 'n' roll drummer."

—By Mike Edison

Shiprock & Marshall

   One of the coolest stories in our next book, "The 66 Kid" has this prominent landmark as the setting.


   Sketches tomorrow along with the poignant memory that left Marshall and his brothers speechless.

"The greatest thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother."
