Floral ambience

That's the sort of wallpaper that killed Oscar Wilde

I'm from the Government

And I'm here to take your picture. Below, photographer Gordon Parks.

Yep. Grant Wood.

I see I'm not the only guy that immediately thought of Grant Wood's American Gothic.

Perfect married couple

As equals facing life together. As it was always meant to be.

Please, no more fish

Writing as one who has "skinned" few to no fish and based on appearance alone; It would appear the good Mr. Lopez has skinned enough fish for one lifetime.

Grant Wood

Please call the office!
