    Wish I were doing my taxes – so I could distract myself with this fine selection of wit and whimsy ; ) The Andrea Tese photography “A Tale of Life After Death” link to AnOthermag.com was good and I was further distracted by their great site. As always, thanks for the fun and info!

  2. Who is the actress in the black and white lead photograph? Is there a photo credit I’m missing?

      • ah, good sleuthing! i couldn’t actually remember the original source at the time (i found it while searching through the LIFE archives, but i didn’t save the link!) i know that it’s from a photoshoot of a bunch of actors and actresses at a farm. not sure if it’s Patricia Neal, but there you go.
