suggestion...can we lock this thread at 100 pages and start a part 2?

it's getting very tough to find some of the images/posts.

also...PLEASE upload your photos to the site under their respective prints/pages and link the photos to the thread that way - then they can be enjoyed by all for years to come, and much much easier to find as well.

that is all.

$25 DIY frame job. gonna lay a light blue inner mat in there tomorrow. gotta hunt one down. hobby lobby didn't have one that matched to my liking. $15 for a killer wood frame, it was 75% off.

Taking kids into a frame shop is an un-nerving experience.
Last time for me (which WAS THE LAST TIME) one of my guys picked up a frame sample corner off the little velcro spinner racks and before I could say fudge to him, he yelled, "Boomerang."
He would up to toss but didn't actually let it fly. I think the lady behind the counter thought he was gonna toss it....and so did I. In a split second, I thought to myself that if it came my way, I was going to got for either the pickoff or the knockdown!

sorry for the bad picture of the shirt, tough to photograph. its from when i met les claypool and the fancy band after a show. got les, gabby lala, and the guitarist (jay?) to sign it.


the shooting target is one that maynard (tool, a perfect circle) sold from one of his websites. he shot and personalized each one, pretty cool.
