Wingfield Thanksgiving Dinner, 1956. Dad is carving the turkey. Mom is smiling, but exhausted (and by the way, cooked the turkey.) Please notice the 1950s version of the sippy cup and my cowgirl costume. Clearly something distracted me from looking at the camera but that would be classic Vera, right?
