I’m not sure exactly why this postcard came to mind on Thanksgiving. My children’s table manners, are, of course, perfect.
In this postcard from 1905 it looks like the orangs may have been smarter than the zookeepers. They sat eating so nicely at the linen-and-china decked dinner table in their chairs. But the bowls look empty! It looks as if the zookeepers forgot to put food on the table.
Maybe Bugsy the Bulldog would like to do it. He seems as if he’d be willing . . . he actually looks a bit like the guy eating at the table on my blog header. But smaller and sweeter, of course.
