Well fuck. That's it.
Made for the nuptials of Miss Patricia Carin Hirschhorn and Mr. Charles Schine which took place in September 1960, this ensemble represents wedding attire on the grandest of scales. The ceremony took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. The style, proportions and details of the gown, including the lengthy train and 19th century rosepoint lace, would have been appropriate to the grandeur of the occasion and the formality of the venue. The dress is similar in decoration and shape to that created by MGM designer Helen Rose for Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier on April 18, 1956, an event that made headlines around the world and influenced bridal fashions long after the royal wedding day.

The bathroom inside one of Disneyland’s ‘Dream Suites’. The alcove is decorated with hundreds of stars, and the soothing Symphony No. 6 from “Fantasia” fills the room.

Jayne Mansfield playing the violin [x] & piano [x] on The Ed Sullivan Show (1957)
Before playing the piano, Jayne joked about others’ preconceived notions of her saying, “My playing the violin and now the piano may remind you a famous story about Dr. Samuel Johnson. Once when he saw a little puppy walking on its hind legs, he said ‘It’s not that you expect him to do it perfectly, it’s just that you’re surprised the puppy does it at all,’ which just goes to prove that I not only play the violin and the piano, but I also know who Dr. Samuel Johnson is.”
"She played the violin, she read Shakespeare. She was not the village idiot. As a matter of fact, she made village idiots out of those who supposed such.” –Ray Strait on Jayne Mansfield
This makes me smile.

There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

"Too often we see female characters pitted against each other for jobs or for men. While the ladies on Brooklyn Nine-Nine are certainly competitive, they do not tear each other down or view each other as rivals. [They] are all wildly different characters, but they come together to support each other as friends and colleagues." (x)
