This is about as 50s as you can get. Note the formal dress. How about that polka dot dress? Brad and Greg were already bathed and came across the yards in their bathrobes. The Sandman already has Brad's number.

Probably the most horrifying episode was when we hit a baseball through the garage door window of the Sills. Mrs. Sills was not angry about the window, but wished she would have known before she lifted the automatic garage door and drove over the broken glass.

On another occasion, Mr. Sills showed us a 5 foot corn snake he had killed in his garage. The beautiful corpse of the snake had ornamental markings. Snakes were everywhere. The big fear was copperheads, smaller but poisonous. Four to six foot black snakes were common.
