Ketchikan, Alaska - A big bash will be held soon at the Arctic
Bar to celebrate completion of a mural by Lawrence "Snapper"
Actually, this isn't the first
time Snapper completed the mural... it was completed once before
back in 1969.
Back then Snapper's hand wasn't
as steady as it is now. Back then he'd have a few drinks, start
painting and work into the night. "The mural showed it too,"
Snapper says, laughing.

This time he straightened things up. He drank coffee and painted
in the mornings - before the bar even opened.
Snapper emphasizes that everything
in the mural is fictional... use your imagination!
