What Are We Waiting For?

I don't know, but I swear can see Ralphie's buddy Schwartz (Christmas Story) right in the middle. And I wonder who belongs to the mysterious hand holding the cigarette. There's a good chance this is in Pennsylvania. That looks like an old lime kiln in the background and southern Pennsylvania is dotted with them.
