The Old Ball And Chain by Al Bourassa

Currently unavailable for purchase

We had a half-hour to kill before taking some wedding pictures so we stopped at a small mall with a Dollar Store in Edmonton. While poking around I spotted this Ball & Chain and I grinned. This little trinket was a great hit with the bride and groom and then it also kept the smaller kids occupied for a good portion of the evening as well as they kicked it everywhere. I think we got a lot of mileage for our $1 investment, lol.
