    He might have upstaged the tomatoes if the picture had been taken with his head at the top of the frame.

    This reminds me of my grandfather. He used to sit around & play cards in his briefs. The funny thing was, he would wear suspenders at the same time to keep his undies up!

    When it comes to displaying your fruit, with or without your looms you’re still the most popular octagenarian in central Florida. So here’s to you Mr. King of the Villages. May the size of your tomatos always be the talk of your local Publix.

    He also wanted to show off his cucumbers…oh, wait.

    Looks more like Prince Philip than Clark Gable.

    This guy makes me not fear getting old so much. You get to run around outside gardening in your briefs just not giving a *f*. It’s not all bad. Oh wait the tomatoes somehow remind me of the hemorroids to come….

    That guy is Mr Tom Ayto. He says “I grow the earliest tomatoes,you other losers can try to ketchup to me later”

    Grandpa’s not too old to pick up a few hot tomatoes! My dad used to like to take pix of him holding particularly large produce from his garden, but blessedly kept his clothing on while doing so.

    And the grandson (fruit of his loins) taking the picture was forever traumatized!

  17. Brenda says:

  24. Thank God they’re not bananas.

    Hi, I’m actor Clark Gable. There’s nothing I like better than gardening in my Hanes (TM) brand cotton briefs.
