    I bet he had to drive out into the desert more than once and "bury" the evidence, don't you think?

    Oh yeah... the swank just oozes out of this photo. They're probably listening to "Frankie" on the "Hi-Fi" too.

    We just don't look or act like this anymore. It's like that photo of Joey Harrison and his mother on the Lincoln Memorial in the early '60s. We've just really lost something (geez, can I sound anymore like an ol' geezer?).

    That's OK Adam... you sound like me, so I guess we're both geezers.

    I'd like to hear their stories! And remember, wearing a tie sucks when you wish for the days when people dressed. On the other side, no muffin tops then.

    Swingers drinking their way through the Naugahyde Era, wearing cuff links and pinkie rings! Amazing!

    This is SO cool! Love it!

    Christmas parties are never like this anymore. No party is. For Pete's sake, I couldn't get people to wear suits to our wedding.

    That must be a scene from the upcoming "Mad Men" season.
