    Unless the wife actually asks for it, it takes a brave and/or clueless husband to give a vacuum cleaner or other appliance as a gift. Bad Idea ! My dad did that one year and my mom was Not happy about it.

    I’ve heard that Lucille Ball was a confirmed Chesterfield smoker, and that when she had to smoke during one of their commercials she’d have them sneak a couple of Chesterfields in the Phillip Morris pack. (My mom was a lot like Lucy, and that was just one more way.)

    Love the ad with Joe E. Brown…. he was the best thing about “Some Like It Hot.”
