No sign of Barbie, but look out for Ken.

The owner hiding from the photographer could be a Mr. Loveland.

Ken has a touch of the electric about him, so maybe he should have been called Henry or Joules?
Could be female so Candela might be appropriate - or if from France, possibly Pascal?

Anyway, he's gone ohm now!
 


 

 

Good weather for the Daisy Chain Picnic - a fun time for everyone.
