« "Sandra Bullock Reveals Baby Boy!" [by Jennifer Michael Hecht] | Main | Overheard 8th Street & 5th Avenue »

April 29, 2010


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
