Cap'n Don

“A rock can dive, John,” Captain Don said. He left time to let it sink in. Not necessarily into my assessment, rather for his own contemplation of what was to come next.

Marx tolerated it, then endured me as I snapped a couple of photos of him as well.

Those who know me, know that when I decide to do something, It’ll get done,” Wyland said. He did it. Not on the wall itself but Wyland’s Whaling Wall Number 100 was completed in Beijing for the Green Olympics. Commemorating that momentous event.
