The GIRL, the BARREL, the TETHERBALL, the VOYEUR LAUNDRY, and the OUTBOARD MOTOR


Oh, people are coming in droves to see these. Droves I tell you! There's a lot of mumbling online about this collection. You know, that sound you hear in the background in movies? Crowd noises.

I had a teacher in elementary school who claimed to have been an extra in movies and told us they were told to quietly say "celery sticks at midnight" over and over again. I'm not convinced. The only thing I was ever convinced about this guy was that he drove a pink Mustang convertible in 1963.

But back to the collection courtesy of the Three Buck Big Box of Photos.

So what is missing from this shot? Send in your answer and try to win* Mr. Lilly's pink Mustang. Yeah, good luck with that.


Click on image to see it larger. But, really, why bother?




*There is no contest. There is no pink Mustang. I'm just pulling your chain and wasting time until I can stop posting this stupid collection. But there really was a Mr. Lilly and there was a pink Mustang.

  2. That "laundry" looks way too regular to be ordinary laundry - what is it?

  3. Ah indeed, the laundry. To see the story of the laundry, at least as much as I know take a look at this old post:

  4. I am intrigued with the barrel..was someone a circus performer? Was it a gift from a clown..a rodeo clown..not everyone has a barrel in their back yard:)

  5. I'm still saying rodeo clown family. She looks like she is in training. In a heartbeat after this shot, she dove into that barrel with the dog/bull chasing her.
