Picture This

It arrived today!

The group portait that was taken by the jovial and AMAZING Mr. Cobb at our 55th reunion.
I say amazing because I don't believe I've ever seen a photograph of that many people....ALL
of whom are smiling with eyes open....looking at the camera.

(Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge it to gigantic proportions!)

Nor have I ever seen a photograph of so many attractive and obviously intelligent 73 year olds!

So if you failed to order one of these photos, I'm pretty sure that for about $25 bucks...you too can get an 11 X 14 inch copy of this limited edition photograph....suitable for framing.

I just made that "limited edition" part up, but I wouldn't be surprised that soon, Mr. Cobb won't print any more... unless .......you ask him to.

Order from:

Now my wood burning scanner wasn't big enough to include everyone in the picture, so here are the folks who were on either ends of the photograph:

And on the other end.......



Below is an almost accurate list of names in the photograph. Please correct any mistakes!
