Happy Birthday Buford!


Well folks, it has been quite a while since anything has been posted here (sorry) but I think it fitting to trumpet the fact that today is BUFORD'S Birthday!

Other famous birthdays today include Barry Sanders (1968), Will Ferrell (1967), Mickey Rourke (1957), Ginger Rogers (1911), and Barbara Stanwyck (1907) but all pale in comparison to Buford T. Porcupine (aka Todd Michael Katke).

I have known Todd since grade school (4th grade - a long, long, long time ago) and I feel so very fortunate to be able to call Todd my friend, my brother. Though the physical distance between us is vast, I can, with great pride, call Todd my best friend.

Have a Happy Birthday Todd.....I mean, Buford. Love ya buddy.

Yeah, what is Todd up to? Years ago (about 20 I think) I know he found God. Does he still pursue that relationship?

Does he have a family?

Well currently Todd is living out his dream ,living in alaska, and shooting up a storm on alot of alaska subjects. Yes I wish I was stil doing shows, I miss talking with you all and sharing the stories. And I suppose I might get back into it at some point in time, but for now building my files and getting pictures to market, along with alot of travel up here to alot of different adventures.

As far as the other question, well what can Say, Have had alot of talks and arguments with the man up stairs. Though he sent me on this mission to alaska. I suppose I will find my answers along the way in my lifetime. I truely believe I am out there in all of gods splendor, all his amazements and good works , so I believe I am doing what god has intended for me to do, a disciple of nature. Go fourth and photograph everything that you come across. Take your adventures and make them teachings to others , we are all care takers of this world, it is through your pictures that you will send a message to all, to care for the world around them and respect all of nature and the wildlife to share with future generations to come.

amen
