    HUGE thanks go to you Doc for ALL you do to not only support the HAMB artists but others as well, not to mention your very generous donation to the Childrens Hospital. You ROCK! I had a BLAST spending your money:D and look forward to us working together again to build your collection.

    For those that don't know Doc is a real Doctor specializing in pediatric emergency medicine so this auction benifiting Children's Hospital is right up his alley. Most at the auction knew who I was there representing and the story behind it and asked me many times to pass along my thanks to Doc. So THANKS DOC!:cool:

    Those are great photos Denise!! There was SOOO MUCH talent on hand, you did a killer job of showing it!
    It's a good thing the Nite Owl was not open cuz you may not have made the show after eating there!!

    Hey Denise,
    It was nice talking to you at the show. Milwaukee is a great event for a great cause. All the numbers have not been crunched yet, but was told were close to $60,000.....Brett

  12. Hey Doc... I was hoping that Denise would suprise you with the Deuce grill...! But she was a "Good Girl" and let Willie G. Davidson get it.... OOOOoooooffffftaaa....!!! (Don't let that happen again!!!):D

    Denise... you're one "Awesome" gurl...!!!! Great seeing you again...!

    Yeah, that was my fault. I had her working off cash when I should have just given her a blank check. I've never been to one of these events, and I underestimated the quality and demand for some of the pieces. I am a quick learner though. I promise you it won't happen again. HAHA.

  14. When I saw Denise at the auction... I waived to her and the Auctioneer counted it as a bid....!!!!:eek:

    After that... I spent most of the day with my hands in my pockets!!! Hahaha...!:D

    Yeah, I showed him my purse and thanked him for signing it. I wasn't present when Paul took it over to him to sign. Willie then thanked both me and Larry for being there and supporting the hospital and we thanked him for all his contributions. Him and Larry then talked about the panels that Harley donates for the stripers to work on.

    These panels aren't flimsy thin sheet metal. This stuff is thick and heavy. Harley has them all custom painted in every color you can imagine and donates these panels throughout the year to the different workshops that take place just for this auction.

    I gave Willie a hard time for winning what I wanted BUT it IS all for the children.:cool:

    I love your coverage of things (you know that is going to be taken wrong by a few that read this:D ). You do a great job. Feel like I was there myself. :)
  18. Wow, Thank you Denise for such a wonderful post.You really caught the essence of this event and did a beautiful job of describing what went on. It was fantastic to spend time with you at the show. Babe-alicious!

    Your pics are topnotch and recorded a very important and historical time in our lives.

    Alton, this years "Pinstripe Legend" is a great person and transcends what "this thing of ours" is all about". I gotta tell ya, his artwork in person is so nice, so tight, so disciplined that it will make you cry to view it and could start wars and conquer nations! No shit!

    All the artists were very generous with their time and creativity.

    Ray Drae, Dave "the Letterman" Jefferies, Barry Quackenbush and company are a class act. They put on a tremendous show and are very, very kind to all of us "wack job" stripers.

    Willie G sure was a nice, patient and classy guy. It made my day to be able to talk to him, get his pic taken with him, get his autograph and then he thanks me for being there.....twice! Man, they sure make a guy feel like someone up there in Brewtown.

    Alan Johnson and David Hightower are my new heroes! Two very cool and talented guys.

    There's one artist there that I really have alot of respect for and has been a friend, mentor, and very kind and generous to me at this event. That's fellow artisian and HAMB'r Larry Hansen aka Oldbobsign. It don't get any better than this guy.

    I could go on and on, but ya all get the picture.

    I'm so honored to have been able to particpate in this event. The dough goes to a very good cause and the work presented is the very best by the very best.

    Thanks again Denise! I'm already working on next year and it's also "Tiki Time"!:D


    Hello Denise!
    You covered a lot of ground in two days!
    This was my first panel jam and I Really did not know what to expect!
    All I can say is that the talent that showed up well.. Is second to none! AMAZING Detail!!
    And to top it off everyone was just a lot of fun to be around! Alton is a trip!! I just wanted to say hello! (Again!) And pass off the link to the pictures that I took of the show. I have it set up so people can email their pictures to the site and then I can just drop them in the gallery! Slide shows are free!! Any pictures or products purchased through the site goes to the Children’s Hospital!
    So pass it on!!

    Denise, great pictures!!!! I don't think anyone knows how awesome the artwork is at that really is the best kept secret anywhere. I was so glad to meet you and all the pinstripers in attendance, this will always be a regular stop for me.
