1976: Tom & Margo Smith

Event: Marriage ~ Persona: Ugly Bug Ball

Tom, Kathy, Burge, Margo

Susan and George Noble gave the shotput to Tom & Margo during the family barbecue the night before they were married. Unfortunately, we have no photos of the ball. This was the first time it took on a persona. It was painted like a bug and took it's character from the title of a song Tom used to sing. You can hear Tom singing it in this 1979 recording.
