  1. The mother in the opening picture is just sooo wonderful, isn’t she? Really like the top ‘toon from 1955 with that neat mid-century geometric lamp above the dinner table. #4 down by Zeis of the shattered living room window glass; poor Dad. Poor Dad in #8 down by Green! Same with the Dads in numbers 9 and 11 down from ’54 & ’56.

    Mom in #7 from ’60, for sure. So that’s 4 Dads and a Mom that definitely need a Xanax, and I suspect a few others.
