Happy New Year 2020 My Readers!!!

Good morning my Friends and those who are just happening by this here domain, let me be one of the first to wish you a very “Happy New Year”. I didn’t go crazy with any revelry last night as I’ve been on one of those sober months that you read about people doing at this time of the year. I actually started mine just before Christmas and figure I might wait until the annual Toy Fair if I am approved for that event. So the wonderful Queen of the Apartment, my black cat Spooke wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year as well and she was quite upset that the glasses were too big for her. She is a good sport with all the silliness that I include her in for sure. She is closing in on her 18th birthday this March.

As you might already know if you’ve been reading this site for any measure of time, I generally like to post a dozen or so “principles” or thoughts on how to have a productive and positive New Year. Since my own day has started off like an Olympic Race I will need to return with the list in the coming days. I have about five convention pitches to work on at the moment for the shows that are happening at the end of the month and into February and that doesn’t even touch the stuff that is happening over on the PiercingMetal side of the fence. Stay tuned and until I get around to the longer list, be good to each other and your pets. Time is a precious commodity so use it well. See you soon.

Well how about that my friends, it appears as though we’ve once again arrived at the time where the Instagram “Top Nine” images are tabulated and that means you get to enjoy them as well. Over the course of 2018, I really was enjoying the use of Instagram as a social networking tool and I’m fairly certain that I used it a lot more than any of the other socials combined. The rundown will come after the image below so please take a gander. I figured that I’d offer up some background on them all.

About These Visuals: Starting from the top left hand corner we’ve got my favorite girl Spooke the Black Cat and she actually made the Top Nice twice this year. The first one is from a vet visit for a quick check up and the other was just her chilling out on my office chair that she likes. There are two photos of me with the first one being from the Style Fashion Week step and repeat area while the other when I was dressed all Southern casual while visiting my family down South. The second row also features two images from the NY Empire State Tattoo Expo which I was honored to wander as a member of the lifestyle media. The extremely lovely ladies pictured from each in a left to right fashion are Ryan Ashley, Nikki Simpson (from an Inked tattoo reality program) and burlesque goddesses LuLu D’Vil, Bon Bon Cherry and Frankie Fictitious. Whew, such talent. The last row are two visuals from BroadwayCon which I attended for the very first time and loved it. Last but not least is a steaming plate of Polish food that my mother made when I was visiting down South. It was so danged good that I had seconds and you know what else was good? Our year in Instagram because I had a blast uploading and sharing all of these and so many more adventures with those who happen by. According to their tally, the account recieved 11.3K likes for the sum total of our 2,860 posted images. I believe we’ve grown by about 60 followers over the year to 681. Let’s see how much closer I can get to 1K on this account over the course of the soon to arrive 2019 year.
