the patience of mature love?

Out cruising design blogs and I see this on sfgirlbybay from someone's flickr. I have to go looking, back to the original source. One comment calls it The patience of mature love. Another grudgingly helping. What do you think?

I think she looks fairly happy. Not sure about him. Although he does have the pipe, which might indicate a certain degree of relaxation. Or is he being stoic?

what does the emancipation of American women mean to you?

Standing up in street cars? Going dutch when your dreamboat is broke? What about the right to vote? That has to be the biggest thing since Adam's apple. Oh Carol, you sweet dumb thing, pull over your flaps- you're dragging..... true she really did say that, does that mean what I think it means?

So yeah, a washing machine. No more clothes lines, no more blue Monday's and on it goes. Emancipation that any woman can understand. Indeed. Apart from the folding, that is.
