People do all kinds of different things on Sunday. Barbecue; watch the big game on TV; go to the movies; work in the yard; or perhaps they like to curl up with a good book. I like to share sub-par slides with my readers on Sunday! Today I have two fuzzy offerings.
Like this one, from 1957, looking down on the new House of the Future, with a crowd of "Leave it to Beaver" extras waiting to get in.
"Patty, you don't think that sofa is made of plastic, do you?". "You bet, Mary! The whole darn place is plastic!". "My, what will they think of next?". (End of scene)
In spite of the blurriness, I think that this is still a somewhat worthwhile image. For a Sunday.
More fuzziness abounds in this picture (also from 1957) of a Dumbo clone. Yes, it's a clone - how else can there be so many of them? They were grown in petri dishes. I heard about it from my cousin Clem, who saw it with his own eyebones when he worked as a janitor at Cal Tech. The truth must be known!
The soft, desaturated colors almost make this photo look like it is 58 years old.
