 and I bought my first legal Magnolia beer! I said I would believe it when I saw it so…John Barley Corn Lives!

    Jamie – First of all, this is a fantastic picture of you. I love the single curl of hair above your left eye, the green wood-slat background, the weird stick-figure-with-a-chef-hat-faux-oil-painting-picture in the background (maybe it is a real oil painting?), the image of something apparently dramatic on TV immediately above your head (is that the bottom of the bridge in Minnesota before it collapsed?), and the light fixture to your right creating something like a 5-rayed moire pattern. Most of all, though, this picture seems to encapsulate, at least for me, the essence of “Jamie-Brandon-ness”. Your smile, your shirt, your glasses: I can almost hear you begin a sentence, ” You know, juxtaposing Malinowski with Pritchard, or Lynard Skynard with Meatloaf…..” In other words, I miss you. And everyone else Michelle and I met in Arkansas. Did Carl take this picture? As Jon Stewart is fond of saying, “Well done, my friend.”
