Amulet

My friend Gary Kueber shared this photo. It made us both smile. The photo was taken, to the best of our knowledge, during the year of the bicentennial, which may explain why, like Christopher Walken and cowbell, this man just can’t get enough of the US flag. Don’t know who he is, but between the headlights, the mirrors, the handbells, the horns (squeeze-bulb, circular French-type, and even the compressed-air-in-a-can variety), the construction helmet, and the pre-xtracycle-like use of a tandem for hauling groceries, he’s got flair.
