Flashback Friday -- Frances
My mother was born in 1910 and she looks about eight years old in the photo. So circa 1918. I have many photos of her with big bows in her hair.
She told me she was a "goody two shoes" (her words) throughout her childhood. She could not understand my rebellious ways. She said she just found it so easy to do what she was told. However, she was not totally a blah person. She began Syracuse University at 16 and graduated with two degrees three years later. One was a Masters of Science in English. That was odd, but true. She was a wonderful actress and taught speech and diction at the University. She was also a "campus beauty" according to a big spread in the Syracuse newspaper. She was engaged to a doctor and then met my father. He was a penniless salesman. She broke off her engagement and married her true love Davis Romine.
