    Tonight on “Blue Note and the Kid” – When a barber shop quartet robs the 3:10 to Yuma they get more then they bargained from passengers Blue note and the Kid. Tonight’s guest stars; Claude Akins as the engineer and Jack Starrett as Shotgun Pete.

    Just a good ol’ boys
    Never allowin’ no harm
    Beats all you ever saw
    Been enforcin’ the law
    Since the day they were born

    This looks like it should be a record album cover. It’s a gorgeous picture, though it begs a lot of questions.

  4. HeidiB says:

    I just love this photo. It’s just so…..I don’t know, so awesome, haha.

  5. jim says:

    this picture is full of win

  6. tishomingo says:

    I love this picture. Both these kids are so likeable. What is it about them? The kid with the hat has so much self confidence. And the other kid is at that awkward age and yet he has this inner self reliant look. They must have parents who love them and let them know it often.

  7. Cody says:

    best caption ever

  8. Love this!

    I’m having some seasonal fun with old family photos over at Holiday Hints from Elf Nita Lou. But with two giant boxes of awkward family photos on hand I may have to take it year ’round too.

  9. Dee says:

    This picture just makes me laugh and laugh.

  10. gregorian says:

    Just keep your hands off the trigger kid.

    There’s nothing like a photo of you in your youth in short shorts and long white socks to embarrass you for the rest of your life.

  11. ann o. nymous says:

    These two grew up to be Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife.

  12. katie says:

    The caption is definitely the best part. Which isn’t exactly common for Awkard Family Photos. Ahahaha.

  13. Cindi says:

    I don’t get the caption. Someone enlighten me please!

  14. brooke says:

    my knees look like that now. at 29.

  15. Meredith says:

    The caption is an epic win! I love that the cowboy has the very tip of his gun stuffed into his pocket, and the extreme socks on the sax player, as well as the dangerous playground equipment in the background.

  16. darleen says:

    By FAR the most awkward picture on this site to date. Bravo!

  17. Shariff says:

    Love, love, love this picture!

  18. sleepygal says:

    Jake and the Sax-man

    Midnight Cowboy: The Children’s Musical !

  20. Dave says:

    I like that improvised holster…through the belt loop and into the pocket. Watch where you point that muzzle!

  21. Violet Beauregard says:

    Love this! That little guy’s swaggering stance & super matchy hat & boots is too much.

  22. rex mannared says:

    “Don’t worry pard. anyone makes fun of your white tube socks again will feel the sting of my trusty rubber band gun.”

  23. Tim says:

    I smell a Fox sitcom premise brewing…!

  24. binkymae says:

    The older brother needed to run track to get away from the little guy, who is armed with a SERIOUS rubber band gun. My Dad made those for my brother and me, and our bullets were cut up inner tubes.

  25. Matt says:

    I had a neck-strap like that once, it was ridiculously painful.

  26. MyMorningJoe says:

    I dont know what is funner the expression of the kid with the sax or the kid that has a gun in his pocket

  27. Shawn says:

    Best caption ever!

  28. tubist says:

    That’s awesome. Reminds me of my bro and my two boys :^)

  29. Susan says:

    I bet this kid and the one who plays the accordian in that dark 1950’s bedroom are cousins…..

  30. Matt K says:

    They also shared a knack for killing off large patches of grass.

  31. John III says:

    “Okay you lull them into a sense of security with that blowhorn of yours, and then I’ll shoot em when they don’t know it’s comin! Yee-haaa!”

  32. Sarah says:

    This might be my favorite picture yet. It’s inspiring me to go back and consider my youthful dreams of fighting crime.

  33. Hilltop says:

    What’s that in his pocket?

  34. Kate says:

    Quite possibly the best caption ever.

  35. theturbolemming says:

    What a team they would make! Like Like Mozart and… Mozart’s younger brother. No! Like Butch Cassidy and… Mozart! Mess with Mozart, and you’re going to have a bullet in your head–courtesy of Butch Cassidy!

  36. abby says:

    I love that the little guy already looks like a worn, middle-aged cowboy. Stance, gut, squint…

  37. LAURIE says:

    Oh…that caption for this photo is just priceless!! Good going! 🙂 It made me laff out loud..thanks!!

  38. El Kev says:

    I’ll go ahead and say it. It looks like the cowboy lost his compound bow and had to settle for the wooden gun instead.

  39. Ken says:

    “When Billy told Bobby to bring his axe for the group jam picture Bobby was a little embarrassed when he literally brought his axe and not Lucille, his guitar.”

  40. confused says:

    Love the caption! The younger brother is so much cooler!

  41. Mark says:

    “Looks like it’s over …. before the fat lady sings”

      kid: yeah one less maniac running around
      chief: the only maniacs i see are you two ….your off the case!
      blue note: your off your case chief!

  42. Cincoflex says:

    So what does the Kid have in his pocket? At spare canoe paddle for a quick getaway?

  43. Renagade676 says:

    Sax kid: “Back off John Wayne. I already have highwater short shorts and teenage angst to play the blues to.”

  44. Deb says:

    This picture is AWESOME!! I love it. But I must differ with the caption, they also have the same ears & nose! I hope The Kid kept that sassy confidence as he got older. Seriously, this picture is great!

  45. Mike says:


  46. AwkWerrrd says:

    Hehehehehheheheheheeh! I love this pic!

  47. Natashia says:

    ~Old Blue note wasn’t so sure if the kid was gonna make it in Jasper County, but once he heard the kid played the brown note… he never worried again. And invested in some soundproof earplugs.~

  48. raevin says:

    Wow. They’re like clones. Awesome.

  49. Andria says:

    I miss Billy the Kid…
