My daughter, the 'pin-up'

My daughter, Ryan, was at the tattoo convention in Richmond, Virginia several weeks ago and ran into pin-up artist Dave Nestler. Ta-daa, now she is the model for this sketch you see here. I'm so proud, thankfully she has clothes on.....

You can google Dave Nestler and see the rest of his works....not bad.

Visiting Blane: Still Later

Hungry from their earlier escapades, Vance and Blane head off to a local restaurant. Blane still hasn't quite gotten the hang of parallel parking.

Parallel, Blane. Not perpendicular. Parallel.

Visiting Blane: Later that same day....

Not to be out done by his little brother, Vance feels compelled to show off....

Visiting Blane

Vance sent me this video from his recent trip out west to visit Brother Blane. Apparently the wives had gone off shopping and, well, Blane just wondered about this big blue ball....

You know, the more things change, the more they stay the Blane.

Vance's first time as a Santa

Me and Vance ditched Tim Burns' art class at Eldorado in the winter of '76 to hustle up some cash from unsuspecting strangers. He didn't have a real beard, so we took Vance's long golden locks and stuffed them in his mouth.

This kid wasn't buying it.

Nonetheless, we made enough to buy two bagels, a quart of Schlitz, and some strawberry rolling papers.

Blane even got a job...

One year Blane got a job working with us. He lasted about 3 minutes -- the amount of time it took him to get on the uniform and say "I Quit"....

Big brother Vance, in his role as Santa, looks on in disgust. "Now I see why you don't hire your relatives" he said.

I met Peggy Sue at the same store I was working as a Santa's Helper.

She seemed like a nice girl and was mostly armless. She had that winning smile and those coquettish eyes. And talk about a a fashion plate! Gosh! She bought all her clothes where we worked. But she was a little pigeon-toed and wore orthopedic shoes when she wore them at all. (She was a simple country girl who'd grown up in a little holler near the Hanford Nuclear Plant). Nonetheless, if she'd had a flat head we'd still be married. Well, we'd still be married if it hadn't have been for those meddling kids and their magic mushrooms!!

Jobs we've had

Then there was the year we got jobs as department store Santa's Helpers.

I'd have kept that job, too, if it hadn't have been for those meddling kids and their magic mushrooms!

Oh, who are we kidding. We KNOW we're in the big book.
