Now that brings back memories. My parents milked cows for 40 years, and I did it for about 10, until I went off to college. I never dressed as well as Conrad did when I was in the barn, though.

Conrad has to concentrate....

If he doesn't adjust that milker just right, it could be udder disaster.

Me too!

I think every kid born between 1940 and 1948 once owned a shirt like Conrad's.

Ultimate Ormsbee

I think if someone said "Picture what a guy named Conrad Ormsbee would look like," I'd have actually pictured this kid.

This has to be him!
