I won a weekly first prize ($100) in the local KINSA (Kodak International Newspaper Snapshot Award) contest with this picture. That would have been about 1974 because I was teaching writing and photography in Amarillo Community College. Kodak used to have a contest each year run by local newspapers for non-professional photographers (that is they don't actually make a living as a photographer). Each week they had a different subject and that particular one was your "Pride and Joy" so I sent in a photo of my own Pride and Joy. Evidently the local judges had a better sense of humor than those in Rochester because it didn't even get a Horrible Mention in the final judging.
