Deanna Breaks Some Bones


5366deannabrokencopy.jpg
These last few days have been crazy. Deanna broke her wrist while roller skating the streets with our 7 yr old niece Sophia. Her right arm! Both bones, radius and ulna. Super bummer for our upcoming trip to Europe, where Deanna's photographs will be at shown in Germany, after my show in Belgium opens.

E-Mail from Griffin...

"This is the first time I have been by that way since we last skated the park.
I couldnt stand it. Driving there the way I used to but knowing it was gone.
I dont think I will ever get over this. That spot will never be some
stadium It will always be the HB park."

It's like looking up Barbies' skirt, hairless and pre-censored. Wait! Is there a connection between the totally bald pudenda trend in female genital hair fashion and the hairless Barbie dolls these said females grow up playing with? I bet someone wrote a paper on that somewhere.
