But even though there mightn't be much on the table, the McQueen house constantly echoed with laughter. It was the family's watchword - when all else failed, you could always laugh. Like many of the people of the Fifteen Streets, the McQueens were as blunt as they were big-hearted. They had views on everything and everybody, and woe betide anyone who went against the grain.
