Before Dan Urbanski went into the hospital last month for an apendectomy, he sent me this:


Hi Charlie,

I've been sitting on this image for a while, trying to decide whether to send it to you or not. Maybe it would be useful on April Fools Day, because it isn't totally real. The river scene was photographed at three in the afternoon on a sunny day, the moon and Venus two weeks before that, and the wolf was added from my photo of it on Lake Superior a while back. I like the picture anyway. It depicts the serenity and mystery of a moonlit night in the U.P.


Although most all of the images on Pasty Central are quite natural and un-doctored, we'll let Dan take some liberties this time. Hans the Hacker certainly stretched reality somewhat with his "Customer Appreciation Day" for this year's April Fool spoof, with the likenesses of a cast of celebrities... all brandishing a oddly familiar looking Pasty Plate.
By the way, Dan, hope you're back to 100% after such serious surgery.

You guys are having way too much fun! Keep it up. And your messages were great in that when you said Liz...I was expecting Taylor, not the Queen, and Bill, of course Clinton...so even the faces were surprises. And who better to represent Cornwall than that supremely handsome Sean. Good Job!!
