ROY X CONE contest, 1.1.11 - 2.1.12

Recommended Posts

Great fit ADH! Robbie - that's quite a find! Anyway of telling how old it is?

Thank you Dr Heech, Max, Alwaysnice! :)

The pumkpin contest had a few categories - and we ended up winning 1st place for the "Green" category! Yay!

"Feast" your eyes ;) The hat is a pepper squash, the eyes are radishes, & the hair pine needles! And a jalapeno on the tongue!

When I can get my photos together, I'll show you the pumpkin seed roasting & pie making! :)

aDH92- good fit mang.

sweepea- it's likely from the 50's. Americans were able to travel to Cuba fairly easily prior to the revolution/and embargo/etc.

^Ah true! I saw the Cuba sticker. That, of course, isn't a problem for Canadians :)

A few US friends have visited Cuba by coming up here & flying out from Canada. It's a beautiful place - I can only imagine what it was like in its heyday!

Went to my mother-in-laws for some pre-Halloween festivities.

Sunday was foretasted as one of the last nice days of autumn, so the Roys took a breather.

Pug!

Roy6 sold me his old '37s. What do you guys think? Might be too baggy.

Halloween: The owners of this house build sets for plays and movies. All the headstones are very realistic and had the requisite cheeky names.

Not that my fits are ever very good, but I think they get better when it gets colder.

Some good stuff in the mailbox today:

From almostnice. Not sure what he was trying to say here. Possibly some sort of cottaging implication. Also an agreeably explicit message written on official Redwing stationary. Thanks old man! But does admin now about your pornographic use of the company letterhead?

More G-rated- a vintage T:

and some other nice bits from robbie, including a National Geographic from 1955 showing some of the quirks of the time:

Insecurity. Could have used this as a flyer to drop from planes in Afghanistan, might have soothed some nerves? No, probably not.

Preoccupation with monkeys.

Feel free to send that care package my direction too ;)

I'm pretty strongly anti-cigarettes, but enjoy the occasional consumption of tobacco via other means!

I wasn't trying to be a dick, but I am honestly surprised how many folks in this contest smoke.

That's me.

Robbie is one of the youngest, and this isn't a knock, but I've noticed that most people born after 1980 never even flirted with tobacco. I've never considered myself a smoker, but with the right hooch I'll smoke my pipe. Also, like most people born in the '70s, I had a pack of smokes in my desk during college. I don't think I ever finished a pack, but I always seemed to have one for the odd night out.

I'm a non-smoker but I can't help the occasional smirk.

yes, all 3 of those fine gents are dead.

I bet I can also find pics of 3 famous and dead non-smokers (if I could be bothered to look!).

you weren't trying... it just happened automatically ;)

I suspect that more people in this contest appear to smoke more than they actually do since - as rnr demonstrated for us - the imagery around smoking is fairly iconic and fitting with the imagery many of the folks attracted to vintage denim esoterica ascribe to.

I'm a sad indivdual in that I gave up smoking rolley's nearly 8 years ago, but started smoking cigars (very) regularly the last three months ( coincided with my divorce becoming final).

Will quit in the new year roughly the same time that the Rxc's get mothballed.

I mostly enjoy smoking after i've welded zinc plated steel. Gives me the feeling that my lungs still exists.

Ditto - replace "pipe" with "cigar" and that's me. So no worries Robbie ;)
