This was one of the toughest days at work. Up and at work at 7am, man this could wear a feller out! This calender thing better work out! I just don't know how much longer I can stand this. Well ok, maybe a few more times.
I keep getting behind in my work.....

Mike,

I must have missed the call for help in putting the calender together. Damn !!! Looks like you still have 9 more months to go !!! I'll turn the ringer up on my phone.

Was there a Thomson in any of those photos?

As an art critic, I can say with authority, that the tower in the background has symbolic overtones.

My wife won't let me have that kind of calendar. That tower looks like a lighthouse. What city is this? Is that one of the Great Lakes in the background? Perhaps Erie? Another OSU student working her way through college.

We did this shoot in downtown Indianapolis! Used a freight elevator to get the bike up there. If it had been 3 inches longer, it wouldn't have made the elevator. Then had to pick it up to get it over the step to the rooftop. The tower is monument circle in downtown Indy. 1 block from the city county building and 2 blocks from the state capitol building! In fact if you look just past the flag pole, that is the capitol building. No lakes in the background, just the haze over the trees outside of town. Have you ever walked downtown in a major city with a machinegun? I can say I have now! At least it was in the FBI case so it looked like a trumpet case or something. laugh.gif Oh, and that is me with the gun. The photographer shot about 50 rols of film that day on the roof and at Dillinger's grave site.

That a 30 round stick mag in your pocket or are you just happy to see her?? laugh.gif

A Colt would be cheaper than a toy like that.....but there's only sooooo much you could do with a '21, and a lot you could do with a 21 year old......

I'm hoping, if all goes well, to have them for sale by September. I don't think I can have some by the TCA show. I would like to, but just don't know.
I think I could have talked her into a video, but that would cost me a bunch of money, and the DVDs would be to expensive.

Yeah, the police chopper only went by once and the local bicycle police station was in the basement of the building. I was nervous as a whore in church. Maybe it was my "security" shirt that said it was ok. laugh.gif
