Journaling:
Paul Gleavy (my dad), Tony Nasuti (their sister Mary Ellen’s husband), and Jack Gleavy (my uncle) doing dishes - apparently a very rare event. I love the rebellious look on my dad’s face, and the stoic acceptance on Tony’s. When I was growing up, Uncle Jack always wore a plaid shirt. Nana’s dining room is visible through the doorway - my folks inherited that dining room set after my grandparents passed.
George and Helen Gleavy’s House, River Street, Hyde Park, MA


“Quotes”:
No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes.
When you complain about doing the dishes, you usually get stuck doing them more often.
You’ve got to love a man with dishpan hands.


“Thoughts”
I cannot believe they made me wear this apron.
OK, men, I’m going in.
I’ll bet no one ever made James Dean do the dishes.
