Ephemera for Lunch #6:
Grandmother and Phyllis

To cap off the theme of Vintage Photos of Animals, here's a shot of an old woman doting over her sad-faced dog on her porch. Written on the back, in red ink, is "Grandmother & Phyllis." Phyllis is the dog in this case, because the dog being "Grandmother" wouldn't make any sense at all.

What I like best about this photo is the Totally Ignored Cat sitting on the railing to the left. The Cat couldn't care less about the photograph ... or Grandmother ... or Phyllis. The Cat does whatever it wants. If The Cat wants its butt, and only its butt, in Grandmother's photo, that's the way it's going to be.

Phyllis probably has that sad look because it knows that The Cat is the true ruler of the household.

Check back at noon Monday for a new Ephemera for Lunch theme!
(If The Cat allows it.)
