I will freely admit I loved his work.   :D

One book that Wiki doesn't mention is Poor H. Allen Smith's Almanac.  It's mostly a takeoff on the Old Farmer's Almanac, and the cover shows a barefoot Smith standing on a manure pile, and holding a shovel.  On the shovel is a typewriter.   ;D

There were a number of stories about Alpine and Marfa, TX.... and a few other pleasantries that are not exactly G-rated.  I lost my copy of that book a long time ago -- I'm looking for another.   :'(
Is that a real poncho?  I mean, is that a Mexican poncho, or is that a Sears poncho?
