    How about another contest - a CAPTION contest?

    Here's a picture from Life Magazine, circa 1939,
    that I've placed on my web site with the original caption.


    How about you coming up with a caption of your own?
    Everyone votes, etc., and the winner gets.... gets...... uh....
    Shamus??? A little help here?

    Here's some:

    "Mom is going to kill us for being on the floor in our Sunday suits."

    "I told you your Roach collection didn't make for good engineers!"

    "Insert part A into part B, unless part C is connected to part D, and only after part H has been twisted to fit part G inside of part N and part M, which must be attached to the outside manifold of part T and prior to being connected to part E and hung using part F onto part X. hmm. Hey Dad... can we go to the movies instead?"

    Vic, ditto for me on LMAO! (Wife said that is a wierd photo).

    msh, you didn't glue part # X yet did you.:eek:

    Btw. What ever happened to Macolm Furlow & John Olsen. I was at sea, out of touch with the modeling world for a couple of years. I don't buy the mags much, are they still around?

    Hi T, Malcom Furlow is now producing Southwestern Art and has become quite a renowned artist in that field. Don't know if he still has The San Juan Car Co. (Sn3) or not. John Olsen...haven't seen anything by him in a long while but I only read NG&SLG now so I really haven't kept up.
