CNN published a story today, written by Paul Vercammen, about the 5-year photo guys from Santa Barbara. The northern California cabin my friends and I have been going to for 30 years to take our photo was burglarized while we were away. The bad guys really cleaned the place out, including stealing our $8,500 boat. Fortunately the thieves missed two of our sentimental possessions: the jar and hat that we use in every photo. Below is our first photo from 1982 and a picture taken last year on the Today Show in New York City with Matt Lauer holding the jar.
