Not a single photo of him on lead in this thread. Is he mainly a top roper? Each to his own I suppose.

Happy Birthday.

Myth!

There are no pictures of him when he was young therefore he is an alien!

I can assure you Jim is no alien.

He came over legally.... on the Santa Maria.

I was meaning that is like an E.T. Type of alien, for clearly he is non-human!

Must come from an empowered race from a planet far far away!

I always loved Peter Pan... in my childhood imaginings he was my best pal. I never expected to actually meet him. Especially not in an old man's body.

Here's photographic evidence that Donini has led a pitch. If you look closely you'll see that his right fingers are grappling with the rock while his left hand is clipping the draw.
