So Jeff Smith, creator of Bone, doused himself with a big old bucket of water, and passed along the ALS ice bucket challenge to me: either donate $100 to ALS research, or dump a bucket of ice water on your head.

Here’s Jeff getting doused.

Well, bless your heart.

I don’t have a video camera, and even if I did, I have better things to do with cold ice water. Like make a refreshing batch of lemonade with it!

Here I am on my deck, like a good southern girl, under my lace parasol and drinking my yummy lemonade. MmmmMMMMMmmmmmm Good. And wearing flannel. In August. Go figure.

You can see by the lousy quality of this photo that if I had dumped a bucket of water on my head, there is no competent person on location to record it. OK, cheap shot, no one knows how to use anyone else’s camera around here.

Here are screen shots of my donation to ALS.

I challenge my good friends the talented and accomplished actress Kacey Camp, and my old friend, John Story.
