it may not look like much, but

this is what i've spent my last couple of hours on. it takes a long time to put that together using InDesign and PhotoShop. or maybe i'm just inefficient.

it starts with a map of wyoming that i bought for sister m when she first left for wyoming in the spring 0f 2006. i bought it at that explore store that used to be in ames between hobby lobby and east hy-vee. i had assistant editor h scan it in for me friday, and didn't have time to put the points on until today.

the points i made in InDesign, then pdf'd them and opened them in PhotoShop, selecting each one and putting it in a new layer so i could drag them onto the image of the map.

here's the list of ranches and various ag operations we've featured in this edition:

the edition is scheduled to print this wednesday and insert in this saturday's paper. this morning i had to write two more articles to fill it, while jen ran down to the county to get photos because the one good one that could have been the cover i deleted in that whole snafu.

so now that's it's 2:30 and i haven't had breakfast or lunch - unless you count a handful of cranberries and almonds - and it's time to get moving on organizing this week's regular weekly. assistant editor h is in wheatland today at a meeting, which will probably make on of my cover articles. otherwise we're featuring a governor candidate, h and p as new staff and the roundup, and i forget what else.

figuring that out will compose the rest of my day. i don't know where the last 6.5 hours went, but they're flying by.
