Robin, you always find the coolest black and white photos! Indeed quite a challenge with so many people in the quartet.

Sandra - these are fun. The kissing one has alot of tenderness there. Your dragon is goofy fun. I'm not real sure how to delete the photo...I'll try though,

Ah, Sandra, the famous kiss...I was actually alive when that picture was taken :( Like your actor with dragon. Here's my take on the same picture, but there is something wrong with the legs. Too far apart and one leg thinner than the other :lol:

Well, maybe he's too short like that little guy in "Shreck"
