Yeah, I know I wasted three bucks  looking at chipped wooden gaffs of JoJo the Dog Faced Boy but it was a birthday gift well-spent. I remember many summer afternoons as a kid, sweating my butt off in front of a metal fan blowing hot air on my back while reading my mother’s tattered copy of Guinness Book of World Records, shocked and amazed at a woman who was so tiny, she could have been one of my dolls; the tallest man in the world, towering over his parents in their Depression-era living room; conjoined twins who fathered almost a dozen children each; and the man with fingernails curling like delicate tendrils of skin. Happy birthday, America, and thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Butler County! I think it runs until Saturday. It’s always a good time (if a bit exhausting!). I’ll have other pics this week too.

Their version of Grady Stiles look more like Slim Whitman!

I think they may have just stuck some wooden lobster hands on Slim.
