Musical Trio

I'm willing to bet that within hours of the first tennis racket being invented, someone used it as a fake guitar/mandolin/lute/whatever. You know you did it. I sure did.

Play the tennis racket, sing into the hairbrush microphone.
And please- let us bring back the Greenie Beanies.

I used to sing into the curling iron. It was my microphone, damn it.

I love your new banner. Laugh.

Are those kids wearing repurposed plungers on their heads?

I wonder how many were sold ...

downtown guy said...

Now that you say that, they do look like plungers that have been flipped inside out.

I too like the new header. Also, what I really like about this picture is the tennis racket being part of a band with real instruments. "Okay George, you can be in the band, but we get to pick what you play." It reminds me of Uncle White doing the "lights" at a prison gig with dad.
