Little horn

That's a WWI Trench bugle on the floor. The US government issued a contract for these in April 1917. My grandfather was an ambulance driver in the Great War and brought one back when he came home.

Wife Barbara

She sure doesn't look happy. They toughed it out for another ten years until the divorce.

Happy Wife, Happy Life

According to the Internet wife Barbara remains with Andy for another 10 years. Perhaps her sour expression here reflects her wondering how the untidy house will show in the magazine.

Candid Camera

She looks a bit put out or something.
