Last of his kind??? Seems to be a popular trend these days.

That was a bad idea, by any stretch of the imagination. I know art is supposed to be in the eye of the beholder but......... I don't want that thing in my eye.

Excellent way you gradually built up to the punchline.

Looking at the statue brought a memory back about a Saturday Night Live skit with Steve Martin and Bill Murray called "What the Hell is That"?

Looks like Carlton fell in with a rough crowd. At least they treat him well.

Carlton’s reaction to the giant phallic ten million dollar monstrosity was much more forgiving and open minded than mine own.

I like reading about Carlton's adventures, even if I don't understand them.

Who would ever have thought that Carlton is an art connoisseur?

Wow, very nice, interesting!

Friendly regards from Nicaragua, heavily sanctioned, where I scrape by at the Gates of Hell, the Masaya Volcano, at the very bleeding heart of Central America. Hell, sweet hell, err, home. I meant home, sweet hell!


I have decided to chime in with something transcendentally relevant. Enjoy, you do not have to pledge anything, my efforts are always free.

Left to my own devices and salivating in the tropical scorcher, in the erupting drought season, the promised $20 bill of rights rain has not even started yet for me here on Subtract. It seems like nobody´s gold pennies can reach my flying BullShip skyhigh. Yet I stay working Job, patience is my virtue upon the rack, tried, drawn, and quartered as vice driven through the rusty nails of my faith .... until I, one-armed, cannot carry my heavy cross anymore.

Substack is the greatest platform where I can share my massive varied witing stuff. I have quite a few posts already here with 60 subscribers and growing every day as people are finally noticing my stranded S.O.S. sign on the beach! Thank God, thanks to you good people. God bless you!
