Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Ah, madness has descended into my life... it is harvest time here in Mendocino and I squeezed in two 50 person parties that I catered in addition to all the winery work that surrounds harvest... Kurt Russell popped up at the first party... in the midst of all of this is Ken painting my bus, again! Life could not be finer! WAHOO!!! back to the madness!

ASWAH

updates are appearing on facebook... if anyone cares to check out both harvest pictures, food pictures and kenmural pictures please befriend me on FB... Francois de Melogue

peace out YO'

I will as soon as I slow down from harvest pace at the winery... Due to weather conditions this year we got and have to process 30 or so tons of grapes all at the same time... We are a small ma and pa winery so it's me and bob ferrying grapes from vineyard to press, pumping juice from here to there without much breathing room... Besides my ability to go online resides either in my crackberry or my bus which is being painted near a warehouse facility for our wine... There is a story in that too...

Very nice- I like it even better than the first version. More of a north-western feel to it.

Aswah, if you need help during harvest next year, let me fly out and help. Harvest time in Mendocino, I'll work cheap.

hey guys, this bus is ALL DONE! Holy smokes... it was a marathon mural! 13 days of painting and at least 8 hours a day each day... the several days (including the last three) were literally spent sleeping in the bus, working 8am- 3am. So if aswah doesn't get some pics up by the time I get home (I am waiting for my plane @ SFO presently) I will post the pics I have. Probably sunday or monday.

best one yet guys!
