Scrapbook 210
I assume this is about Olga's husband.

Interestingly, check out his painting that was supposedly the first of which to be sold at auction:

https://www.mutualart.com/Artist/Josef-C...03EDE0EC03

Seems pertinent. Forrest may be saying "the bell has rung" for the last lap of the chase.

Forrest may have a lot more paintings by this artist. It wouldn't hurt to get a little publicity for his paintings if that is the case. Ricky would know.

By the way, $5,000 for a painting in 1934 would have been a stunning amount. Adjusted for inflation, it would be the equivalent of over $95,000 today. During a bad economic time back then.

I don't buy it.

Every painting I found by the guy went for no more than $3000, tops. Most about $300-500.

Interesting to note that once again, Forrest purposely misspells a name. His name was Josef.

So, is the 5000 a reference to the low end elevation? Could be.

Hey -- thanks for the honorary degree! "University of Heyoka" I assume. Do I get a certificate of some sort? Signed by Forrest? I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express the other day.

If you adjusted for inflation in the other direction (ie, the $5,000 represents current dollars), then the original price might have been about $260, which would still have been high for the time period, but certainly more realistic. Forrest likes to play with "time", so this appears to be a more likely interpretation.

RE: Scrapbook 210
Ufer's ashes were spread in a creek near Mabel's. Ufer was also on of the "Taos Ten." If anything, this SB has given me the desire to pursue avenues of interest I thought were lost. Back to the beginning of the poem. This time with fresh eyes and new thinking. Logic tells me I will eventually find something.

The journalist that said the girl seated at the piano in the painting of “Olga” was Josef’s wife, was mistaken. Olga was Josef’s daughter.
