Hi Folks
Herewith is challenge #3 for the year.
I trust this will be a little more user friendly than the last, as there are fewer juveniles in the pack.
As a new twist to the challenge, there will be a side competition for the funniest caption for picture #10 (toilet humour allowed :tongue: ).

#1
Image
#2
Image
#3
Image
#4
Image
#5
Image
#6
Image
#7
Image
#8
Image
#9
Image
#10
Image

Enjoy! :)

LBJ's are quite simple. First put them in the right family group, and then work from there!
