This quiet little 10th century mountain hamlet, an hour outside of Rome, is the place I'll disappear to in my quiet years.

Over a decade ago Jerry Brown unveiled my Joe Petrali monument in front of Bob Dron's HD in Oakland.
We made small talk, & I asked if he was a Dead Kennedy fan or knew Jello Biafra... that the closest I've ever had to having a meaningful conversation with a politician.

Von Dutch painted this for him & he ruled the scene in pink & red!
I got it from John Sawahski years ago & use it more than any other helmet.
I love it so much, we used it for color scheme on the Special K bike.
I am not the sharpest tool in the shed.
Just a plain old tool.
I have managed to create more work for myself, plus I told everyone 4"x6" envelopes, with work.. but 6"x9" avoids folding stuff!
I am having fun so far, plus I leave country tomorrow, so I can pass the buck to my daughter!

My mom kept 100s of photos in volumes of albums that bring to tears to my eyes still to this day.
We need to print things on tangible mediums, as I fear all this information we have available to us now is only on the screen we are looking at.
There is no charm in a disc of info.
JJ suggests I start using a Polaroid, & I think he is right.
I believe I will.
I know I am naive & backward, but if offered a disk of images for $1 or a greasy photo album full of faded images for $100. the decision would be made with out hesitation.

The self addressed envelopes are arriving in droves!
Please send 4x6 so I can send you the the big sticker & post card without folding them.
If I get the smaller envelop I will just send the small sticker.
