Wednesday July 20th 2011 - Book 69 - This book stands as a testiment to the pit falls and wonderous motivation liquor can bring to any production scene. This book happened by accident. I was called to meet "Dick" at the Hot Springs after I finished the Great Eggstra Mystery. He was a regular down there, and he bought my first "bag book" for $30. After he left Jeff the Hot Springs Caretaker broke out the whiskey. I stayed for a cup, and then decided to leave because I was already feeling too whacked to talk to anyone...but not too whacked enough to call it a day. I ended up answering the call of alchohol, hiking up to the miner's cabin (on my daily rounds) at dusk, packing down a couple of "wintered beers" last year's miners left for me, and staying up late to do this scene. Thanks to an extra boost from Millionare Miner Rick's wintered Fosters it turned out to be quite the adventure. Hope you enjoy it!
