Thanks

Thank you for posting this article. I just love reading anything to do with Aistreams (photos, too).
Now, I am certainly not sure of this but, judging from other pictures I've seen, I think that first cook (in the plaid shirt) could well be ol Wally himself.
What do you think? He certainly would have been at this rally.
Maybe all middle-age men in horn-rim glasses look the same to me?
Anyway, before I read the caption I looked at the photo and that's my 1st impression. So, I was expecting to see his name mentioned in the text. Since it isn't mentioned, maybe I just imagine the similarity.
Huh?

This chef appears to be too tall for ol' Wally himself. I do think its a novelty to see someone actually in the act of drinking a beer in print. This was banned in all advertising, broadcast and print, many years ago and to actually see a guy with it to his lips is something not seen for awhile. Looks refreshing.
