(Hopefully appearing for a limited time...)

There's the old saying that "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."

Life gave me less than a whole thumb.

I made....a little friend.

It's all in "How you look at it..."

And, finally, in honor of "International Day of Peace" (which got dreadfully little attention in the U.S. media, go figure...)
Mr. Thumb, AKA "Lefty" (or what's left of him...) says "I forgive you...this time".


Special thanks to Craig, the whole LB team, the Composer and the .42 Wide-Angle attachment for making "one-armed" bending possible (tricky, but possible).

Thanks for looking,

Sorry about your thumb - very effective storytelling, though and images. Great good morning laugh.

Hi Crabby . Im busy hear counting, Im counting no arm bending on that last one. Unless you used a body double. Sorry to hear about your thumb, life would be so much better if we were all jellyfish. Love the sequence . Tony.

Thanks to All--glad I could give you a larf--that was the idea.

Tony--Actually, on that last one, I had the camera attached to my face with a combination of silly putty and butcher's twine and focused with my prehensile tail...
