This past Tuesday Tom Veilleux opened his new Portland gallery with a show of work by Will Barnet. I dedicated my Symphony #2 to Will and his wife Elena. Spending time with Will and Elena is one of the greatest pleasures of my life.

Joey practicing state of the art 10-year-old-boy humor on Vivian:

Joey: "Know what's on your head?"
Innocent Victim: "Ah, no. What?"
Joey: "The Brain Sucker!! Know what it's doing??"
Innocent Victim: (icily) "Uh, what?"
Joey: STARVING!!! (uncontrollable laughter from 10-year-old-boy only)
