Grandma King and Ted

There is pencil writing on the back of this original. Apparently from Jerry's mother Mary. She wrote that "Grandma still thinks Ted is the (cats)"
When discussing this picture at the Sherlock brunch this week: Helene, Angela and Jerry agreed that while all the boys helped Grandma King with chores and errands, Ted always got the best reward. Grandma would give him the apple to "divide in three halves" and a nickel or dime that no one else got.

Grandma King was also fond of saying "the yard is wide" - meaning go out and play. Not far from what I heard when growing up about going to "play in traffic".
