New York follow-up

I haven't been posting enough lately, but thought I would share the following. I'm a happy camper about this one. I won the Audience Award at NYICFF for the 8-14 year old category!!
Oh ya...and last week a Mack truck ran a red light, and t-boned my car. Oddly enough the car is gone but I am not!? This makes me even more of a happy camper!!!!

I heard that you took your seatbelt off and jumped out the sunroof at the last possible second. That's pretty impressive. Congrats on winning that award thing.

Hey folks - Thanks for all the kind words. I am blushing...either that or my cheeks are red due to impacted molars :( (kidding...I am blushing...I have false teeth, so the molar gag is off the mark)
