We had an invitation from Ricks son, Michael (a talented custom builder himself) to come out the night before and partake in a pre celebration of sorts. Somehow I failed to take any pictures of the actual Saturday event.... I fell asleep on the ground in Micheal's booth. I do, however, remember seeing Michael's up and coming shop in downtown Fort Payne (see photos of the Alabama-the band-memorial statues on earlier blog entries) which is soon to have a mini ramp as well as the metal arts of Michael himself. I wish I could be in Alabama for the grand opening. Maybe I will if it gets done before July. thanks for the hospitality Michael!
