    hi ken-

    you might want to ask the moderators if they can spin off your thread on its own, similar to what they did for the east coast get-togethers, or else make it a sticky.

    What a great place to go for a shoot! I sure wish I lived closer to California. If I did I would find a way to be there. Can't wait to see all the photos posted.

    That's great.....
     
  19. In case you haven't seen it, Ken's wife has just posted that he's been hospitalized, but no details. Since he's been the driving force behind the zoo shoot, I suggest we postpone it until he can join us.
