Blazing Diapers

We were either too poor to take a pony ride or there were no ponies in the city, because there are no “pony pictures” in my family.  But who needs a pony?  Even living in a big city like Philadelphia, we still had some tough cowboys to defend us!  Here’s my favorite photo of my brother:

Gunslinger Drew, 1961

Drew in 1961 - If he could talk, I'm sure he'd quote John Wayne: "Out here a man settles his own problems."

With a gun in one hand, and a bottle in the other, he’s off to save the world.  Or at least prevent his pacifier from being stolen.

  1. Thanks for all the nice comments! That photo kind of summarizes my true essence…modern cowboy, renaissance man, protector.
    I still like guns and bottles, but I no longer wield both at the same time, and I never even touch a weapon after drinking!
    I may try to re-create that pose with my own two year old son. He already has an ever-present pacifier and an assortment of toy guns. Although he has long given-up the bottle for a sippy cup, he’s got the Point-squint down pat!
