"What cannot be said will get wept"


Kommerade of thee Kollecktive Nope sends this New York Times link regarding our close personal friend and drinking pal Jim Harrison. It's certainly a reverential profile, tho it had us bleating with envy.
Money Quote:
Most days, Mr. Harrison winds down from writing by hunting with Zilpha, his Scottish Lab. One of their favorite spots is a ranch owned by the San Rafael Cattle Company — a place that is, as Mr. Harrison says, “preposterously beautiful,” almost savannah-like, with knobby hills, rolling ridges and stately emory oaks. Off in the not-so-far distance are the Huachuca Mountains, sometimes dusted with snow. “This place is so visually overwhelming that you forget you’re hunting,” Mr. Harrison said. “I’m spoiled. I have to hunt where it’s lovely, which means that I am no longer a serious American sportsman of the blast-and-cast school.”

Damnit. You scooped us. And on a Harrison interview.

A Harrison.

All hail AHW. Someday, I will hunt you down like the scurvy dog you are, but instead of a bullet, you're getting a beer...

I know a guy like that. He's a writer but has never written a book. Someday.

There is a guy I would like to share a bottle with. I'd hide the good stuff though.
