Susi Lawson 7/9/2006 12:33:45 PM

Thank you all so much! As soon as I saw his face I had to get some pictures! He was sitting at the edge of the stage here watching another performer and chewing on tabacco. I asked if I could take his picture and he gave the customary,"Don't break ya camera " comment:)A character for sure.. I think I will go back next Friday and take more!
Thanks again! #3004244
