For Leslie

After reading Leslie's piece about due dates, I pulled this from my stock:

Published in 1924, it took 15 years for one brave girl at Galena Park High School to check out this gem.  Only one.

At least she learned how to mop (and dress):

And she knew how to recognize a "variety of home laundry equipment, from which good selection may be made."

One wonders if this Galena lass made for one good-laundering bride. Or maybe this book convinced her to change direction, and she took off for Tangiers, or someplace, and learned to drink & smoke like the boys and hold her own on a motorbike. Maybe she became a spy, even!
