    You weren't kidding about the size! Looks great, can't wait to get a copy.

  11. Words, words, words,,,,
    Inside your head they scream - Let me out! But if spoken, they are lost,,, they must be written down.. Quck a pencil stub to write them down before they are gone,, middle of the night you wake up reach for the light and the pad, don't wakeup the partner,,,
    The computer, is in the next room but it is off!
    Finally when the words are out and placed into some sence of order you hit send to the printer,,,,
    But now, it has to go out to the masses, the readers. Indesign, Photoshop, send to the printer, proofs,,, and finally in your hand is your soul. Sell? Money? This is my life and if it wern't for my accountant I'd give it away just to hear,,, ' Hey this is great, you do good work"
    Thanks, I needed that.......

    I always love reading your stuff, but I must say you outdid yourself this morning. Great little piece of writing! Of course I can relate to most of it...except the So. American brothel, of course. I've been reading lots of classic L.A. Noir lately (James M. Cain at the moment), and this holds up to that. Now I'll have to see how good the book is.

    If I can't get ahold of a copy, I will throw a tantrum the likes of which my kid has never imagined...
  16. Can't wait!!
  17. Sounds like the place outside of Norman the old man & I stayed in last year for the Chickasha Pre-War swap.

    Looking forward to TJJ #3!

    Can I buy it now and wait for delivery?
  23. Will definitely try to get a copy. Why don't you accept pre-orders?
  24. You've got me hooked, just because of the sneak peak picture, of that 29 Chevrolet! As usual, we know the quality will be first rate, thanks for all you do Ryan!
