10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Bus Ball

A reader sent me an e-mail about ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons' Bus Ball. His suggestions was if I don't get my bus fixed, I should turn it into one of these. Looks like motion sickness waiting to happen. I'm sure the kids would love it though. ;-)

"Bus Ball" is actually the work of sculptor Lars Erik Fisk. Unfortunately, the piece was recently wrongly credited to Billy F. Gibbons on http://blog.coker.com/, the blog of Corky Coker. Since Corky's posting, many other blogs have linked to the story about Fisk's Bus Ball, but have similarly misinformed readers about the actual artist. While many people have tried to post comments on Corky's blog to correct the information and fairly credit Lars Erik Fisk, the efforts have been repeatedly and not-so-mysteriously deleted. I'm not sure why the Corky Coker blog is so adamant about wrongly attributing "Bus Ball" to Billy F. Gibbons, but it would be nice if the rest of the blogs interested in the story could make an effort inform people of the truth.
