Bernie Dawson trains for the 1979 gurning competition

Posted by Picasa
Dr Phillpotts catches Bernie Dawson getting a bit of practice in for the 1979 gurning competition: maybe it was the cows that drove him to it.  The woman on the right is called Beverly, according to Dr Phillpotts's captions.  The names of the cows went unrecorded - an uncharacteristic oversight on the part of the Chronicler.  Actually, now that I think about it, Bernie may not have been gurning at all: Dr Phillpotts may have caught him halfway through one of his legendary exhibitions of eructation. Perhaps it is as well that motion pictures were beyond us in those days, let alone sound recording...
