I’ve been doing so┬ámany other art related activities, family celebrations, mobile mansion projects and all, that I have been neglecting my book. I have absolutely got to come up with a book design before I take off for Todos Santos in November. This is my first cover idea. I am using the stencil Pat Nolan cut for me over a year ago.

My two favorite “guy” series on TV today are “Hell On Wheels” and “The Strain”. Gail likes H.O.W also but eschews the gore and aggressive weirdness of Strain. I have written a bit about Anson Mount, the closest thing to a hero in the gritty Western noir world of Hell On Wheels. He is also the closest thing to a cinema hero that I know of who graduated from our Alma Mater, Sewanee (The University of the South). There was another actor in my Class of 1962, Elliott Streets, who had a few character roles in films in the 70s-80s and more frequent TV roles in series comedies like “Fantasy Island”. (Note: Elliot is still around! Saw him recently in “Last Vegas” doing a few lines as a wedding parlor reverend.) Anson Mount has really owned the role of Cullen Bohannon from the first episode and the writing and a cast of talented supporting actors including Colm Meaney and the formidable Christopher Heyerdahl as “The Swede”, have kept me binging all the way through five seasons.

I have dreamed of being a well paid senior cartoonist but I don’t think there are very many of those positions left so the competition is probably fierce, and feisty, and cranky.

This is in response to the continuing efforts of the Tres Santos/CSU unhealthy alliance to take more than their share of a very limited supply of water in Todos Santos, BCS, where we spend more and more of our time.
