Mrs. Cleaver

Barbara Billingsley, aka Mrs. Cleaver, died yesterday. She was 94.

I'd argue that June was thrifty. She cleaned her own house, albeit in pearls and heels, and prepared all of the family's meals at home, save on special occasions when they went out.

Life never was like Leave it to Beaver, but I don't think it really matters. Entertainment is meant for escapism, especially when it takes a light tone. I haven't watched the Beav and the rest of the Cleavers in years, but I'll take another look next time I need an escape.

PS - I've been watching clips this morning and the show's ALOT funnier now that I have a little boy!
