My long-time friend from Dallas, Tony, came to visit this past weekend. We had a great time reminiscing past exploits, and scheming for future exploits.

We managed to close down a wine bar, begin deliberations to have one of Tony's drawings displayed at Cabo Fish Taco restaurant, take a road trip to Blowing Rock, watch some football, eat and drink too much, and laugh the entire weekend.

Tony has just launched a new money clip, the DuckBill, just in time for the Christmas rush. He will have some regional advertising coming out in the next few weeks that will hopefully direct buyers to his website.

I now use the money clip, and it works well. The beauty of it all is the realization that you only need to carry a minimal number of things, and that something as simple as this accomplishes that task wonderfully. Once you use it for a while you have one of those "why didn't I think of this" moments.

Regarding the artwork that may end up gracing the walls of Cabo Fish Taco, it's a reproduction of a drawing that Tony did in 1991. The piece, entitled Piscean Vision, is of a mythical fish, and was originally done in brownprint (similar to the blueprint process). But since that process is no longer available (long since replaced by computers and color printers), Tony had the original digitized, and will have it printed on canvas, 7 feet wide!

We're already planning another weekend of debauchery, wondering why we waited so long for this one.
