Thank you all for the birthday greetings! Much appreciated. Although I don't know how I got so old. Did it happen to you too? Came home today from a long trip for this-n-that and was greeted by this...

This is the letter which blew the lid on Sammamish High and revealed the seamy underbelly. It went to parents of a few bad apples (OK, quite a few bad apples) who attended a social gathering at, as I vaguely recall, John Gomez's barn. A good time was had by all, until the next morning.

In Feb, 2013 I installed a sculpture bought by Beyonce (yes, THAT Beyonce) from a show in Texas. Didn't meet the girl but had a great time anyway.
