Could This Be My Kin??

My good friend Conrad Hartz sent me this photo with a short line of comment. I just broke up laughing and had to share it. Great Stuff from a great Ventriloquist Figure Builder.

Dan………I found this marionette that just may be kin to you. (:o)

    Looks more like that little guy that does the commercial on network tv failling down Niagara Falls.
