Bachelor Uncle and the Spinster Aunt

Thanksgiving is a time when families come together.  Some members you only see once a decade and never really know their life story. Remember when there were unmarried members of the family  you would see at family reunions and other gatherings? 
"Mom, who is that old lady?".  "That's your Great-Aunt Kate, dear, she's, well, she's your, um...she's your Spinster Aunt.  Remember how I told you she decided she didn't need a man.  But, we haven't given up hope." 

 "And, that old man over there...who is he?"  Well, son, that's Great-Uncle Spence.  He was married long, long ago... Now, he lives in the Mother-in-Law unit he calls, The Villa"   

Kate, oh my God, they're talking about us!

Why are both of the characters wearing aprons??? If you're not married it means you have to wear an apron? I never wear an apron so it can't be about ME!

Spence said...

That's not an apron. That's a chastity shield. You wouldn't want people talking.

Just bring me back to these good old days.

Calgon, Take me away. Brylcream, a little dab will do 'ya. Maxwell House Coffee... good to the last drop. Fly the Friendly Skies. Snap, Crackle & Pop, Plop, plop, fizz, fizz... oh what a relief it is... See the USA in your Chevrolet...In The Land Of Sky Blue Waters...

Those were the days, Aunt Bea and Uncle Charley. Thanks for watching over us at home.
