Dear Penthouse,

I never thought this could happen to me...

see? 😂

p.s. Mark, don't keep it near your keys. It *will* scratch, despite Ti's hardness.

Update on the super dooper Ti wallet.

The money clip part is pretty tight, and will only hold a few bills. I'm a big cash guy and carry a gangsta roll. I tried to bend the clip open a bit and it snapped off. Dang! Because I do so like the rest of the package. Back to square one...

I found it after googling "ipad wallpaper" and thought, I have to spread this one around.

As for the Ridge, I opted for the strap not the clip. (Yes, I chose my own gift). I wonder if they'll let you make an exchange.

This is similar to the RFD wallet I carry.
It does not allow me to carry a lot of crap in my wallet, and i don't care it it scratches or get banged up.

I'll give that a try. It is way to cool to not make it work.

By the way, I did search for the original image to at least mention the artist's name or source site, but all I found was other people and sites who ripped it off, like I did.

The EXIF data for the image says "Copyright Apple Inc., 2017", and next to that it says "description: Display P3" (no idea what that means).

Mark, did you briefly have an avatar of yourself hiking with a woman — a striking resemblance — or did I dream that?

Edit: I don’t know why I wrote “mom” earlier, except that I was receiving updates from mine on her eye surgery. Scatterbrain, i am.
