  1. Hmm. I think my favorites of this group include #3 down (’57) where he’s smoking in bed, probably listening to sports on the radio, and having a fine old time. Also #4 (’60) of Dad diving under the bed (I guess) after seeing the big needle?

    My favorite here also is #7 from ’56. I think it was a gas explosion of some kind with all that mixed together, and they have a 2nd bathroom. Hopefully it wasn’t spontaneous combustion. Though rare, it can happen with a match or cigarette lighter under the right circumstances.

  2. The one from 1956 about the “explosion” was the best. It reminds me of a Daffy Duck cartoon I once saw on TV. Funny!
