What this really is, is two guys, a country apart living up to to getting the job done like it should be done...no excuses, no bonehead mis-steps...just an idea expressed over the phone and a 'lets do it!' About a day (just one day!) after we talked about it, Jimmy had some dealers lined up and it was on. Vrooom!

My dad's favorite line was '**** or get off the pot'...ya know? That's what's wrong in much of today...COMMITTEE Thinking. Got a good idea DO IT. What's really rare to me is finding somebody like Jimmy who will hold up their end and full speed ahead. The old Napoleanic slogan comes to mind mixed with Larry The Cable Guy... 'Damn The Defiant! Git 'er done!"

The next step was having somebody else believe in me and recommend to Ripley's that I was an Oddity enough. Smile I won't mention her name but she knows how special she is to me as a true 100% good egg and friend.
Next step was sitting around ...for over a month filled with anxiety yet secure that Ripley's would treat me well and that my legasy was safe in the hands of a GREAT cartoonist, John Anthony Graziano. (What a super job he did!!) Next up is inclusion in the Ripley's hard cover annual due out in September and one more important 'thing' being worked on.

The annual will also cover the Royal Tour and appearance at Buckingham Palace etc. That story is also amazing and once again due to another person who backed up their talk with outstanding 'get 'er done' tennacity and talent. That would be Ken Dean aka 'Kondini' You can see part of that story at http://history.grindshow.com/

So there ya go. **** just doesn't 'happen' in all cases. Smile

Thanks Jamie! The ONLY club I'd want to be a member of! (and the only one that would have me) Smile

It was so cool to see the Zibit on display there! Meeting all the great performers was icing on the cake during Sword Swalowers day. (even Brett.)
