Hello I´m Mr. Humble I´m very happy to bee here
thow I´m not looking so good as I used to in the fifthty´s when my hair had
a wonderfull horn shape worthy to be carried by a waterbuffello but lost it trugh time
aah those were the times when we greased the hair before we walked out the door
now I have to carry this cap on my head instead
why I´m happy becourse Dennis desided I shuold have two brass nails to ceep my cap in
place and what I wuold say to have my head filled with grease again , oh boy I was excided
he even bath and refreshed me in RLO and stained with some old engine oil where it was need to
hide the scars from the investigation


thank´s for looking by

Cute box. I remember the days when we used greasy stuff on our hair, now it is hair spray just like the women. What can I say….........

Aww.. it looks like a teeny tiny pouting chair… or maybe a potty chair?

So now we know what happened to the old plane that you massacred a couple of days ago. At least it is now useful in another way. Good recycling.
