Red Tail At The Seaside?

A Memory Man Production


The year is 1931 and, a father of the times, your boy's bare bottoms have in the past suffered a number of encounters with your belt.

You lost your job in the Great Depression but nevertheless with a succession of casual jobs you have managed to get by and even scraped enough together to allow you to get away for a few days at the seaside.

You are ambushed by an itinerant photographer and although you can ill afford it your wife persuades you it would be nice to have a family photograph to stand on the dresser. Unfortunately when you go to collect the print your wife is mortified and bursts into tears claiming your eldest, James, has ruined it by pulling a silly face.


The Referenced Family Photo (James - 13 and Paul - 10)

Is your wife going to be the only one in tears?

Oh, well, it's not so bad! I don't think the photo is ruined. I'll comfort my wife and, as a punishment, James will go without dessert tonight.

I agree with Icono. The silly face is not that bad, and does it really matter in a memento of what is supposed to be a good time? I'll do myself to console her but I'm not punishing the kid. I want happy memories of what may be the only holiday we have for a while.

I agree with Kat and Icono. It's not a rude face, and the picture can still be displayed. If James's "cat that swallowed the canary" face is embarrassing to him in the future, well, he posed for it.

No punishment.

Nowadays I would agree completely, but I suspect (I might be wrong, since I was not around then) that in 1931 photographs were kind of a big deal. Even in 1931, it's not bad enough for a serious punishment, but a scolding might be in order.

I don't know if '31 makes any difference, but my honest feeling is that I'll point out to my wife that it's a very nice picture, and that it lets her remember James as he really is, instead of trying to get him to fake it.

I will, however, have a talk with him along the lines of doing things to make his mother happy. I just can't see this coming to a spanking, though.

It's a great picture to laugh about when the family gets together in the future. I think that the wife will eventually see that.

James just being James. I will talk to him about these things being important to his mother but will endeavour to persuade her that the hair brush treatmentShe'd have to do it!) isn't necessary this time, at least not for his bottom. We are after all on holiday I know Micky Mouse first happened about 1935 but was there such a thing as a goofy expression then. May be one day it will be a family joke especially when James has grand kids but I will suggest to James that he is especially nice to his mother for a while.

I'm in harmony with this choir. Even in '31 this isn't worth ruining a holiday and being in '31, I can tell my wife she's being silly about it without worrying about being seen as unkind.

Hopefully this will be one we can laugh about in the future.

Oh Dear! I've sparked off unanimity. Shocked

I guess that since I'm a contrarian investor I'd better whack him then. Razz

Actually, no he didn't.

Mickey debuted in 1928 and was already very famous in 1935. Steamboat Willie was the first Mickey production distributed (but not the first actually produced)

One of the first sound cartoons.

Easy. I just say "I divorce you" three times in front of a witness.

Let it go, lady. It's a great picture and a lasting example of the true James.

Agree with squarecutter. Let's allow for goofiness and let it go in the scrapbook.
