The Crown Affair

In order to understand this part of the blog, you really need to read the comments, especially the "anonymous" post from Patti. The comments have become a story in and of themselves! I wasn't going to bring up the crown ordeal, but since Patti did, the game is on!


In all fairness to Patti, she didn't wear a "crown" on her 16th birthday. It was a tiara. After more than 45 years, the picture taken of our family taken that night re-surfaced, and when I showed it to our elderly mother, she said, among other things, " . . . and there's Patti with her crown!" Patti also wore a baby blue satin dress made by mother. Another unfortunate thing for Patti is she may have been wearing her crystal-blue cat-eye glasses, but I'm not sure about that. The picture will tell the story. None of us are catwalk material, but Patti looks particularly special.


  1. My Dear Roger Sisters,
    I have cancelled my subscription to Mad Magazine and I will no longer flip through TV channels looking for something to humor me now that I have found your blog spot to make me laugh until I cry!
