Here’s the July image on the Carl Larsson calendar that hangs in our kitchen:
Notice anything unusual about it?
This is actually the fourth modification the image has gone through since I flipped the calendar page and exposed this picture of a family picnicking and swimming, including some skinny-dipping children.
The first modification was when Mabel thumbtacked up a torn piece of paper to cover the entire boy in the picture, with the word “sensored” written across the paper.
The second modification was when Isaac corrected the paper to read “censored.”
The third modification came when I removed the thumbtack, which kept falling out when I tried to look ahead in the calendar, and replaced it with a small piece of tape.
And, finally, the image ended up as you see it now — with the original torn paper modified by Dean into a pair of swim trunks for the skinny-dipping boy. (Dean wasn’t bothered by the swimmer’s lack of clothing; he just did this as a joke.)
