    Haha! Definitely made me smile…but what made me laugh was your Don Draper image–so true! I think the Mad Men writers need to read your blog. ;)

    Could you please tell me which edition of Life Magazine you got these pictures from? I am doing research on the The Mirth Response Test and I would like to see the original article and pictures. Thank-you
