In the words of my hero; Stan Laurel: "Gee, That's swell photography"

Thanks Steve, and to your camera person also.

In the Spirit of Laurel & Hardy,
Hope 2-c-u-2 soon in Amsterdam,
Harlem, Madison, or Milledgeville, Georgia USA.

One up-date:

The photo from Madison, Georgia;

This Georgia Historical Society Marker dedicated to Ollie was unvailed during the Post Convention trip to Georgia after the 2002 Nashville, Convention.

The official un-vailing was performed by Dale & Dennis from Canton, Ohio aka/dba: Look-A-Likes in the afternoon of 15 July, 2002.

The L&H Museum of Harlem was officially dedicated in the morning of 15 July, 2002.

And a walk in Norvells Foot Steps tour in Milledgeville was also the same day befor the two motor coachs arrived in Madison.

In the Spirit of Laurel & Hardy,
Hope 2-c-u-2 soon at Harlem, Madison or Milledgeville, Georgia, USA.
