To the millions (?) of Daveland viewers that were scared of Mildred and bailed on my blog, here is proof positive that you had every reason to be fearful: the empty stroller.
I knew I liked her when I first saw her; this June 1969 image proves that we are kindred spirits; she has worked her mojo on the stroller and made the kid disappear; now if she could only make the stroller itself disappear, as it is the real source of evil, not the kid. One other thing I discovered about Mildred is that I believe she is the original inspiration for Dana Carvey’s Church Lady from Saturday Night Live; this photo says it all...“Well, isn’t that special?!?”
Although I missed the regular comments on my blog yesterday, Mildred doesn’t care. She doesn’t give a rat’s #$%^ what you’re doing because she’s got an ice cream cone and that’s all that she needs right now. Just take the darn picture and let her eat in peace.
You may not find her interesting, but the paparazzi did...she was the Britney Spears of her day. The poor woman couldn’t eat an ice cream cone in peace or even enjoy a simple beverage while strolling through Fantasyland. I have also included a close-up of the ticket sign, for all you semi-serious readers that are still with me.

For Daveland Blog reader Mr. Mouse Monthly, here's a closeup of the Bekins sign:
