What's Up Mr. B...

I'm setting up a photography home studio at my house starting Dec. 23 for family portrait and headshots. If you still need one, drop by my house (let's set up time) and bring a USB storage device with you (or a blank CD-R). We'll do a quick take, no cost..

Oh btw, I entered the Annual Inner Ear Jam on the events page... Poetry has not been represented here lately, so I thought I'd put it in...


Cheers,

Victor

Hey Brian- I'm so glad to hear from you. Great timing. You have been on my mind. I really, from the heart, want to thank you for participating in our event. I just love your poetry, truly. I'm kinda on a just say no to Fresno kick right now. So many artists, organizations and so on said they were down to support this project and the kids and they were all a no show and the kids noticed it. So thanks so much for coming and laying it down.
