    Awesome! Thanks for sharing this talent. That must have taken forever to film. I loved it and truly haven’t seen anything quite like it.

  13. I used to take my son to see puppet shows. This man is quite gifted.

    Hi Van – really enjoyed learning about Ricky Syers – and I need to reference this post (if that is cool with you) next month in one of my “artist posts” – and I even watched the video you shared about Doris….
    Ricky Syers is so talented and glad you met him (in your van – down by the river)

  16. Haha! Thanks Van — I needed the smile you just gave me. Maybe next time Stix should try a ZZ Top tune… I do see a resemblance. 😀 Mega hugs.

    That was fun. Stix certainly gets about. I even liked the music. 🙂
