Happy Valentine's Day from Marjorie

I love this image because it reminds me of my kid sister, Helen. Her head is always in the clouds and she's a dreamy romantic at heart. And she LOVES clever costumes like this one. Her life's ambition is to become an actress, a fact brought out in You're the Cream in My Coffee when she's tapped to recite "The Wreck of the Hesperus" at the Kerryville High School Spring Fling.

Sometimes, though, Helen's life ambition seems to change hourly. For example, when she met Amelia Earhart at a book signing at Marshall Field's, she briefly wanted to become an aviatrix. That
ambition lasted until she learned how much math is involved in learning to pilot an aeroplane.

 Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!

Please remain civil, and bear in mind what Emily Post wrote in 1923: "The letter you write, whether you realize it or not, is always a mirror which reflects your appearance, taste and character. . . . A "sloppy" letter proclaims the sort of person who would have unkempt hair, unclean linen and broken shoe laces."
