Happy Valentine's Day!

Look at this cute little cherub
face!! This is a 1920's picture of one of my mother's
neighbors and friends that she grew up with.
Her name {the cute cherub} is Helen. She would later
become a gym teacher for the public schools. If you
were a child
living in my home town,
chances were almost 100% she was
your gym teacher. {back when we had gym class ALL year}
I love this picture of her. Those dainty booties are adorable!

But the way I remember her is with a whistle in her mouth and a
basket ball, or dodge ball in the crook of her left arm and propt against
her left hip.
She died in the same house that she was born in...
that she was raised in...
And raised her own children in...

The house,

a beautiful Victorian, complete with stain glass windows and a touret
was painted always

Valentine Red!

Wishing you a happy Valentine's Day!
