Yeah. My Aunt Lizzy took this shot mid afternoon just prior to the July 4th parade where my sister Belle and I were to ride a boy scout float in honor of WW11 soldiers and rodeo cowboys which were non existent in this small outpost but alive and well at Frontier Town where they dressed one hour as dogie catchers and the next as stage coach bandits with bandanas across their faces laced with Jack Daniels and a white powder which made them seem a bit spaced out and oblivious to what their exact role was. Well, Aunt Lizzy played this role perfectly, always a wee bit foggy and unfocused with eye-specs like the bottom of old coke bottles and an apron always filled with jelly beans and Jim Beam bottles, often sucking on one or two at a time. To clear her throat she told us kids but we knew it made her speak without the usual lisp and to dance better at Lonergans barn where square dances were a Saturday event and hangovers were Sunday breakfast. When older, she informed us both about this with Dude insisting that all the used condums be collected and counted and compared to the previous weekend tally. What a glorius era where stats were more important then bacon and eggs or a messy bowel movement.

Have you been nipping the Jack?? I believe you were a bit taller in 1965, unless peach Snapple and vodka has dampened my memory.
