Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Christmas 1971, I bought a “family” present, an electronic organ, for my family who all liked music but had very little musical talent. But as hope springs eternal, my youngest son dove right in and his constant companion was BB, which stood for various things like “black boy”,“Baby boy”,“Bad Boy”,and several others which can’t be listed in deference to RB etiquette.

Anyway, he was utterly fearless, guardian of the house and property, and our beloved “child” for 13 years.

    What a grand pic, George! What a great memory and thanks for sharing. “BB” was short for a number of terms used by us for various cats and dogs through the years and, I would have to say, pretty much all of them were unprintable.

    haha! You’re right on, Mike, and you can no doubt guess at least a couple of them, especially when he showed his part-Siamese spirit at various having a midnight conversation with a skunk. You know the weird noises a Siamese can! He was born in the wild and we found him when he was only a couple of days old and there was nothing but to make him our own..:)
