Boys Will Be Boys

Many years ago, a friend and I went to a couple of Halloween parties dressed as Laurel and Hardy. We had the bowler hats and the mannerisms down pat. He was Stan, I was Ollie. We were a big hit! Later, we stopped at the VFW club near home for a last drink. Someone told us that they were about to judge a costume contest in the next room and we should enter. We said that we were tired and didn't want to enter it. When they told us that we would receive two free drinks just for entering, we almost ran them over getting there! Darned if we didn't win!! It helped that it was an older crowd. We each received a quart of whiskey for our prize. Later, we drank a couple of toasts to "The Boys". We hope they would have been proud of us.
