The final curtain is closing on Helen’s Pacific Costumers soon… They invite the community to come by and buy some of their amazing collection. I went by last weekend before it was too busy… we had a great time.

KATU did a story yesterday, and I agreed to be interviewed. My comments didn’t make the final video, perhaps because I was wearing a giant beast head.
