Dachshunds Who Live in the Past

When can we move in? Meet Joanne Massey and her dachshunds, who live in a recreation of a 1950s home in Stafford, England. Joanne is a housewife, and her husband is a graphics application designer. She says: I love nothing better than fastening my pinny round my waist and baking a cake for Kevin in my 1950s kitchen.
I put on some lovely Frank Sinatra music and am completely lost in my own little fantasy world. In our marriage, I am very much a lady and Kevin is the breadwinner and my protector.

I admit I am in retreat from the 21st century. When I look at the reality of the world today, with all the violence, greed and materialism, I shudder. I don't want to live in that world.

We hear ya, Joanne. Read all about some Time Warp Wives and see some fun pics at The Daily Mail.
