    :DALTERNATE CAPTION - "Flashback
    to 1937 - For reasons that the Nerdly
    twins still couldn't fathom - and despite
    their very best efforts, which
    included wearing matching white
    "imitation Naugahyde" shoes and stylish
    new, 3-dollar "genuine burlap fabric" suits
    from the 'bargain bin' at Woolworth's
    - and at Silage's insistence - every
    Friday and Saturday night - even
    renting this, new, 'uber-snazzy', '37
    LaSalle ambulance (complete with a
    spotlight, dual side-mounts and a
    working siren even(!), for use as a
    'shaggin' wagon' on their always
    hoped and planned for, but never
    achieved, 'double-dates', - Silo and
    Silage Nerdly still found it very
    difficult- and actually, completely
    impossible in fact - to make a hit
    with any of the ladies in town!

    He is the guy with the brushcut holding a pen.

    L.A.'s '52 Chrysler Imperial parade phaeton (upgraded by reskinning with '56 nose and deck). Took these in the staging area for the East L.A. Christmas parade in '85, but the film I was using had aged a bit.
    OK, nap time...

    Not unless Shemp had a place in Brazil... Note the license plate. However, also note the movie poster (in Portugese) for A Ceia Tragica, the local title for the 1944 movie Strange Affair - which featured Shemp Howard as a laundry truck driver!

    I think novadude55 is right unless her parents spent too much time at the uranium mine. :D :D

    I took a closer look at the picture and I think that it's a prospective distortion caused by her finger pointing at the camera and her other fingers pointing down. you can just make out her thumb tucked behind her other fingers.

    Mike I wonder if you might have a finger fetish :D :D I wouldn't have seen that if you hadn't pointed it out.

    Dick :) :) :)
