Memories

This reminds me of a game I saw once at a Valentine's Day event where the blindfolded men were supposed to see if they could recognize their wives' hands by touch. Unbeknownst to one poor guy, the ladies traded places with a bunch of the guys.

This party is a little bit nicer than the one I was at, though I'd agree with Kirk that he should have changed out of his barn boots before he came.

Muddy waters

By the looks of his boots, this cowpoke has been fishing for love in all the wrong places.
