The Story of the Men of Halloween! Beware- scary,hairy seventies men w/ no cloths.

While shopping at a local thrift, looking for some unusual item, I ran across a baggy stapled shut with three decks of cards. I loved the brown ones with a really cool pattern. So for a buck I brought them home. If you can only imagine my surprise and as it turned out a gift, in disguise. Aren't the backs wonderful color? It was worth one dollar.
I knew I had to use them in some art work. Something. Then came the surprise!
Imagine my surprise when looking further, can you see my grandchildren finding this little breakfast bird in my album. Well, most everyone knows in my family to expect the unexpected from me. The girls at work got a big laugh. Pretty soon all over Mesa, women were giggling and laughing and some said gross! Mostly the young generation, I love the long hair but only on the head, no mustache's beards,chests. etc.
Yes they were from all over, every shape color and all hairy. There were even a few afros. No doubt they were from the seventies.
This guy looks like Starsky from Starsky and Hutch.

Yes, this is my favorite! Sulky, moody? Can't believe he got rooked into this? As Atc's go they turned out great, but the laughs and story were the real prize.

Amazing how our tastes change over time. I don't remember ever thinking anything off about the 70's guys, but now, they do seem kind of criminal looking.
