My friend Samuel and I attended our first Puppetry Guild of NY meeting recently. At the meeting it was announced that one of their members had just passed away. To honor him they were giving away some of his puppets to anyone who wanted to give them a good home. One puppet stood out to me. He was a tiny business man that made me laugh immediately. On the train ride home Sam and I came up with a series of stories that involved our new puppet that we have named Barry.
We feel incredible fortunate to have been given this puppet. If you are in the NYC area and are into puppets, you should check out the PGONY. They frequently post puppet happenings and other great puppet events.
