Had some major fun today. 114 out so went swimming. Okay, it was actually sauna-ing
Found a spider in the studio commode and Kathy told me, "Don't kill him. Take him out." So I took him out. Nice guy. He's a web designer.
Went for a walk before dawn. Got a haircut from Bev on the way back. Caught this scene on the return walk.

Got a new art print ready for shipping.
I have an ambitious (read that complicated) illustration in mind for my latest YouTube video on the chances of Doc & Wyatt being lynched after the O.K. Corral fight. The Tombstone stalwarts were actually more at risk than most people have realized. Evidence to follow. Meanwhile I sure do love doing prep drawings of frontier types who might have showed up for said lynching at the O.K. Corral sign, no less. That would include these cats:

Fear & Generational Loathing
Read a funny piece in the NYTimes about the hatred of Gen X, written by a Gen Xer. Loved this line: "Boomers know they are lame." Well, some of us do, who have lived long enough to realize how lame we are. I remember a time in college where a fellow student lamented the Vietnam War and gushed that he couldn 't wait until people our age got into power and stopped all the madness. And, here we are at the tail end of Boomer rule and look who we put in the White House: Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Donald Trump. I can't wait to see that trio on Mount Bushmore.
