“TIRE INSPECTION”

For those of us who love Louis Armstrong, this might be a familiar picture.  Someone took a snapshot of the musicians in a Forties band visiting the men’s room, and Louis annotated it in the upper left corner (in fountain pen).

Some readers will think this childish; others will think it points to the way the subject of sexuality and its attendant machineries turn grown men into little boys — I just find it funny.  And rest stops on a long road trip are delightful interludes, even if they aren’t being photographically documented.
