Listed below are links to weblogs that reference April 29, 1962, at the White House:


doubt very much that the woman behind jack is ethel...ethel was 34 in 1962 and that woman's close cut hair style was not 1960's ethel...

It looks like Mrs. Newton, the mean old lady who lived next door when I was growing up. She'd holler at you if you stepped on her grass and was always turning the hose on our poor dog if he barked. I don't think she was a Democrat, though.

I love this! Great picture. I think JBK is thinking something more generous, though. Am I swayed by the dress?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
