Does it strike anyone else as odd that they are, at the same time, shaking hands like a couple of midwestern Rotarians?

Tricky was born with a facility for such handshakes.

Excellent caption!

Thanks, Tod. The "Chairman of the Young Republicans" type in front there looks a bit uneasy watching the whole spectacle play out.

As a midwestern Rotarian, I have to say my mother never sucked parasites from my head.

I shook that hand, in 1968, sort of. I was 14, and my h.s. history class got out of school to go to a place where the Nixon campaign was doing an event. Many hundreds of people, and with a kind of morbid curiosity (already a fierce Nixon hater), I reached out my hand when he came along the line. It was nothing like the firm grip he is using here on his mom (!), more a dead fish kind of grab of the fingers. His hand was clammy, and I felt pretty slimed.

G.S., I envy you your handshaking gifts.

Heartwarming scene, excellent series.
But where is #102, if I may ask.
