Dear Shaded Viewers,

I'm scanning through my past while working on my upcoming autobiography and came across this old, and might add, my only contact sheet. Here are a few memories stretching back to 1988. BTW any Shaded Viewers that know me from back in the day, if you have any particular memories that you would like to share with me….please do.
