The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.......

In 1999 my son was 13 years old. He was so impressed with my TV Guide covers, who wouldn't be, that he wanted to create some of his very own. 

Having no TV Guides around, he found a Reader's Digest somewhere and the TV section of our Sunday paper. 

Here are the results......They're Animatronic, of course. (Photographed in sequential action shots....)


Viewer is required to pull the tab on her wrist...


Eyes start to close and tongue comes out....


Eyes closed and tongue in full Gene Simmons  position...


Another pull tab creation...



grrrrrrrrr. 

My Dad would be proud.

"J" is for just-like-mom. And now you have an idea of how your father felt.

Very clever - something to keep the kids busy with on a day when they claim to be 'bored' too !

It's so great to see family traditions being carried on! Now does his father pretend to not notice as well? You guys are too funny! ~Lili
