123 Marshall Road, Hydsberg, New York, the residence
of the Baxter family: George, an attorney with the firm
of Butterworth, Hatch, and Noell; his wife, Dorothy;
their son, Harold; and their maid, Hazel Burke. George
Baxter was always in control of everything at the office,
but almost nothing at home. When he returned home from
the office he entered the world of Hazel. She ran the
Baxter household more efficiently than George ran his office.
In fact she was more efficient than most cleaning companies in NYC
but had many endearing qualities that made her more than
just a maid. She was always right, knew exactly what needed
doing, and preempted his authority with alarming, though
justified, regularity. The Johnsons were the Baxter's
nutty neighbors, a very naive retired couple.
Smiley was the family dog.
