For Pete Gray, "The Nose Knows"

Spoke with Penguin this morning and he tells me he had his nose broken to correct problems from three previous breaks, one in Desert Storm, the other fishing for Halibut in Alaska, and the last one, which is really good, was when a guy fell on his face while he was laying down on a rough trip back from blue water fishing . Oh God!.....so now he looks like Mr. Gittis (Jack Nicholson) in the movie "Chinatown". I had to post this, it is too much. Seriously, I hope you get better, and i will see you tomorrow.......P.S. hey Pete, did the Halibut fall on your face too???

Holy "extreme makeover" batman

More like "...thuh doze doze...." I guess, Ouch!!!

I trust that the re-engineered appendage is as efficient at sniffing out big moma schnauzers as its predecessor.

If the Forum were to ever consider an IPO (see Cabela's thread in Worldwide Discussion), that picture should be included with every investor prospectus.

How could we go wrong?

Pete,

Last thursday I had my septum "undeviated" - I feel your pain I needed to correct 7 breaks! I don't know if I can chronicle them all, but the first is noteworthy. I was 6 years old and for some reason - likely only known to 6 year old boys - I decided to sprint from one end of our house to the other - with the lights out! I did fine until I was passing through my bedroom heading for the playroom when my somewhat impressive flight was interrupted by the fully closed door to the playroom!

The other 6 breaks were from sports, a couple from football, but most from basketball. At 6'2" and 205 lbs (in those days) I took great pleasure in terrorizing the big guys into being aware of where I was at all times ... occassionally they would even remember to lower their elbows as I came by - so I did indeed have need for some re-adjustment!

Unlike you, I did not need packing, instead I had internal splints. Interestingly the damage seemed relatively minor. I got the splints out yesterday I'm breathing great and I never did develop black eyes - I guess they learned something from the other 7 breaks! The photo below shows the visage on the first day home - it is a self portrait as no one else could stand to look long enough!

So Pete, next summer when Sandi and I pay our return visit to the Cape and Area 61 you and I can ditch her and head out on the town with our new-look noses!

This thread is too much...who else has a broken nose and do you have photo's. That's a great profile Kush, and seriousness of purpose in the look.... the nose looks good too.... does anyone have a picture of a nose where the job was botched?

Hope you both feel better soon. Good Luck.

I just met a georgous fllyfisherwoman that was interested in finding a flyfisherman to share some time. I said that I may know of someone. She said to send the most recent photo that I knew of to her. I did a search of Penquin photos by date and hit send. She is not interested
