This picture of Frank is Frank being Frank.

His picture was used from January 1 to April 30, 2018. 

Normally I would take Frank's picture down by now,

but I just love it too much to do a thing like that.

 

   

 

 

The wallpaper on this page is from a

photo taken at the Nitobe Memorial Garden

at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver,

B.C. It was shot by my good friend, Evan Black, 

in late April, 2012. He says it was the

camera, but I say it is the user.
