Robin's Best Shirt Award, April 1, 2011

It was April Fool's Day, and Mary Henderson was 'out of town'.  In her place were Judy Baxter, and Bud & Alice Blatner as judges, and the Lol Ha Beach Bar was a-buzz with wild and crazy anticipation, wondering how they could make a selection from the plethora of 'best shirts' that were on hand.  There is some speculation on HOW, but nothing has been proven.  A good time was had by all.
