BACK STREET HEREOS 321

Let it snow, let snow it, let it snow



The plan was to get home from Japan & spend the holidays with the family... away from the snow.
We went on a cruise to the Bahamas, and although Nassau was great, it still felt like a tourist trap.
A cruise is not a good idea.
There is no fun being trapped on a floating mall for a week, being feed cafeteria food & watching cheesy broadway knock offs in the eves, for a lack of anything better. I lost my desire to read & never got out of my funkylackofsleephangover from Tokyo.

Fast forward, NYC.

Cramping the Seeger's style as we abuse their hospitality, stuck in the city as the subway from Church Ave. to J Street is closed. JFK & La Guardia closed. The City is gridlocked.
No delivery, we dug the car out & went for a few pies... best meal so far... car got stuck, as we were digging it out we noticed the bus stuck in the storm & abandoned.
Entire city blocks and parked cars completely buried.
Surreal.
Went sledding in the park & felt like a child.
I need to rethink snow... I could learn to like it.

Timeless

I saw Jimmy in a silly Nashville flick with River Phoenix, it must have been at least 15 years old; He hasn't aged a year!

100 year old glass prosthetics eyes, bronze & stainless steel




I planned on doing 9. Two eye balls broke at $200. per!
What a job getting the fragile antique eye to marry the bronze & stainless steel.
Super neat.. but I'll never do it again!!
Only 7 & I'm having a hard time pricing them!

ALL KNOWING prosthetic EYES

I have a salesman sample for prosthetic eyes from the turn of the last century.
Making 9 for Yokohama, & use the rest up for crazy small projects in bronze & stainless steel.
A winged prosthetic eye is on its way...

Forbidden Few

I got out bid on Ebay! I didn't think anybody cared about this stuff.
It was a mistake to let this one go. A very nice piece.
