Wonderful picture showing, as cliché as it may sound, the endurance of the human spirit. Especially enjoyed the rocking mustache on the right.

My mom has a magnet stating that "Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans." Some people freak out when traditions/events dont go according to plan. It seems almost a shame, I love those times and disaccociate them from whatever perceived negatives have derailed them, because for one, they bring people closer together, and two, they are the times that become awesome stories.

I agree, though, if anyone has endurance and fortitude, it is the British people...

and How did I not even notice the mustache?!

"A life, Jimmy, you know what that is? It's the shit that happens while you're waiting for moments that never come."
