The Jonah Family began with the dogs. One Valentine’s Day my corgi Peggy Guggenheim brought me the front section of a very large Plecostomus from the resaca. I left it outside to lose its pungent aroma. At some point I perceived it as Jonah’s “great fish”

The Jonah Family began with the dogs. One Valentine’s Day my corgi Peggy Guggenheim brought me the front section of a very large Plecostomus from the resaca. I left it outside to lose its pungent aroma. At some point I perceived it as Jonah’s “great fish” from the Old Testament. I just happened to have some pieces of Ken dolls and so emerged Jonah and the Great Fish.
