I was on the Jones Soda cherry soda label last fall.

In the picture, I am wearing an ancient black aqua lung wet suit that I borrowed from one of my friends; he is wearing a more modern blue wet suit. We're standing on a dock on an island in Canada. My hair is sticking up, and it looks even more red than usual in the sunlight.

I look pretty wacky.

The wetsuit once belonged my friend's grandfather, who used it to gather abalone from the coast of California, back when one could find abalone off the coast of California (allegedly one still can, but certainly not near populated areas). It floats like a cork.
