A lonesome desert inspires an odd friendship.
Loved this and looking forward to more. You meet the most amazing people in the desert southwest. Reminds me of the lady (?) running a little cafe on Hwy 10 in Gila Bend. The name of that place sets the tone, doesn't it?
Excuse my language, but the only thing I could think when I read she fed the badger holding a hit dog between her teeth was, "Holy shit!"
I love the illustration and story, this sounds like my kind of book!
It's great. The badger lady comes alive. I wish you had waited to see the badger back then.
Basil Beeswax the candlemaker?
I will look forward to these stories! This first one was just perfect to open my interest in all the people you’ll be portraying!
“Haw! You shoulda seen their faces when I said I feed my pet badger hotdogs with my *mouth*!”
“Sharon, girl, you are a mean one!”
They're probably watching a nature show together.
