Well, OK...

So we're sittin' out on the verandah takin' in the very early afternoon sun (amongst other thangs) when this ENMU student walks by and flashes us the peace sign.  Not a wave, not the usual high-sign, but a bona-fide, two-fingers extended peace sign.  I waved back in the usual, customary and reasonable manner.

The sixties are DEAD, Dude... just in case no one told ya.  OTOH, mebbe he was just expressing solidarity with this:


It might could be one Deadhead recognizing another and I'll cut him a sprout if that's the case.

Hey!  There's an ideer for today's Happy Hour Soundtrack!

  3. I always heard it was the peace sign if the palm was out... and means, "you wanna drag?" when the back of the hand is out.
    You gotta picture Winston Churchill with a big ol' Robusto.

      In most of the rest o' the world that particular gesture also means what our extended middle digit means. Photos of Sir Winston with his ever-present cigar are among my very favorites!
