THE VAGABOND JOURNAL - A various and sundries collection of sketches, stories and photographs about life as I see it during my wanderings and exploration in this thing we call life. Unusual circumstances and sometimes down right weird, it's all contained within these 80 pages. What you see below is just a sample.


 Subday Afternoon - A beautiful day, bright and sunny. Neva and I took off for Archer city. Where Larry McMurtry of "Last Picture Show" fame has located his bookstore "Booked Up Inc."
We arrived about 3:00 in the evening and of course the book store is closed on Sunday and most of the town also. So we just poked around.



Wisdom is a rare thing among the sons and daughters of men. It cometh to them alone that hath had experience.

Wisdom crieth aloud in the streets and no one answereth. Wisdom shoutest from the roof tops………. Still no answer.



old door in the little village
of Antalope.

there was a sign
on the main
highway saying
there was a
historical marker
in Antalope but we
didn't find it.



At the "Now and Then" Antique Shop in Jacksboro, I found a book "Working North
from Pantagonia" by Harry Franck. I collect
his books most them written in 1910-1930.
I paid $2.50 for it. Neva found two china
saucers from an antique pattern that
she collects.
What a great day.

THE JOURNAL is full of wisdom, but only as you are a regular reader may you acknowledge its power. Your experience will then become the same experience of thousands of others.


 Now there is only one way of becoming a knower of wisdom. That way is to send in your request for a copy, for which you will be taxed the infinitesimal sum of $5.00. This includes postage, but perchance you are a foreigner, then the postage is extra: however not severe. Thus you will be able to enjoy THE JOURNAL in your own domicile.

  This is a very special offer open only to special readers and thou wouldst run but slight risk in availing thyself of this opportunity to acquire so much wisdom.

Also, may we say, wit, humor, art and delectable photos by the now famous photographer, writer and sketchiest whose work is faithfully mirrored in each issue of THE JOURNAL. Thank you.
