    Rick you are officially grafted in as a PNW "fishhead"! Now you know that Seattle is the best sun block in the world. It sure was a great time, and to have you out this way! You are a great inspiration to all of us!

    Kudos,
    Jeff

    PS Dan your rainbow carving is amazing! Your anatomy, fin work, and painting is awesome!

    I'd like to say that I have been immensely appreciating all of the excellent work that everyone has been posting over the past few months, as it is also a nice way to sort of live vicariously through everyone's handiwork while being on somewhat of a forced break. ;)

    Rick, thanks again for the salmon head - it turned out awesome and I am enjoying looking at it every day! It was a great time to spend a few days with you and the rest of the gang here, and the time went by way too fast. You are surely a welcomed PNW fishhead in all respects. Sorry again for the huge mess here while the remodel is going on - next time you'll have to stay longer so we can get out the bows, pellet guns, RC trucks, go fishing, and also we'll fire up the big bikes so you can have some real fun! :)
