who always has his eye on the . . prize / might be the best way to put it !!!!!!!

esp when it comes to calling . . art !!
being way ahead of the game is perilous, let’s not go there / / / / /
but revenge is most definite sweet, and too bad Simon, SIMON CERIGO didn’t live – to see this.
Walter was one of his earliest calls in NYC – in the early 80s.
we owned about 6 of them. if not more.
all kinds, and in all sizes. we had the Romance / Porn ones, the pharmacy cabinet ones, an oddball floral still-life, and even . . the big ‘ape’ journalist – was ours at one time, too.
