    Hello Alex…

    Welcome to Las Vegas!!! Glad you got the bowl back home. I live here, but not actually live here. It is the 9th year for me now of seeing, watching, smiling, and living here in Vegas. Till now I just have started to photograph it. Surely. I got kick off from many places, but that was a fun part of it.

    I appreciate your work. Your ideas are interesting.

    By the way, Happy Birth Day sir.

    Hi Alec,

    Officially out of print but still available on Amazon for a lot less than $ 4000…
    Vegas ain’t all that bad!

    Best wishes

    Sounds like an awesome birthday, Alec! Welcome to the ranks of the middle aged. It’s nice up here.

    Why oh why in the name of the lord is Sheri’s nipple scratched?

    Now that is an interesting and unique bowl – very original. I wonder how much it would have fetched on ebay…

    I have never seen anything like this bowl. What does it symbolize?
