A hearty well done to reader Brian Snider for being the latest member of the Little Brown Jug club, and did he ever. Snider created not only a 5 gallon version (like the actual jug), he knocked out four and three-gallon versions:
Each member of the group has drawn on the experiences of the others. Perhaps we need to form a Union – The Brotherhood of Primers and Jug Painters, Local 1903.
Great work Brian!
Update #1: Snider is offering the 4 gallon version of the jug on eBay right now. It’s the easy way to enter the Jug Club.
Update #2: And speaking of auctions, check out a new mgoauction featuring a Jug print signed by the A-Train, Chuck Woodson and Butch Woolfolk:
