Babes in Toyland Toasts



At every meeting we drink a toast to:


Stan Laurel

The creative genius of The Boys,
whose loose-limbed grace provides
many film highlights.
Oliver Hardy

Rotund Ollie sings with sweetness and delights
us all with his pompousness, especially as it
always is punctured.

Mae Busch

Mae is a great supporting actress, often a
wife, more often their foil.  She brings a
brashness to the screen that is memorable.
James Finlayson (Fin)

A supporting actor with great body language and
facial gymnastics, his squint and, "Doh!" make
him cherished by the Sons.


Charlie Hall

Charlie supports the Boys in varied roles,
most often calling for a smallish, put-upon,
but feisty character.
Al Kilgore

Al Kilgore is the creator of the offical Sons of the
Desert logo, and is fondly remembered.  The motto
means, "Two minds without a single thought."


TOAST FOR THE MONTH: To Finn

He squints one eye like no one I know,
And, of course, he blurts out his famous, "Dooooh!"
For animated double takes
James Finlayson could take the cake.
He was an indispensable member of our Boys' team.
It's fun to watch him vent his steam.
What a character was he,
Finn makes us laugh out loud and slap our knee.
It's a sin to not toast our Finn,
So let's give a Laurel and Hardy "Rah! Rah!" to him.
