SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Toy T-Birds

How much do we love it when a dozen Shriners don their fezzes, dress up in uniform yellow shirts and bolo ties and then cram themselves into matching mini 1965 Thunderbirds and parade down the avenue?!

I want to live in a world where this happens a little more often.

Here’s to the Shriners, their toy T-birds and YOU!
