Funny, how a trivial comment can traumatize us, especially in our youth.
"Big ears, turn your head to the side," said the photographer's assistant as I sat down for my eighth grade graduation photograph at Gallup Studios in downtown Kingman. That comment really stung and, in fact, haunted me for a long time. For one thing, I never realized I had "big ears" until he barked at me with some authority and it's hard to look in the mirror after that and not see the curse of it all. I know this sounds ridiculous in the overall scheme of things, but, man, for a long time, my ears were burning.
"I feel your pain, Kingman dude."
Meanwhile, the Triple B Studio Art Sale continues. Two days ago, the father and son team, those Majestic Corderman's showed up and drove off with a trunkload of goodies.
By the way, just for the record, John is holding "The Gullywasher" upside down.
