Look at them Tracy, perhaps you can tell

In a minute Mother. I'm up to my neck in these blank thank you notes

6

I should simply say thank you so much for your lovely silver dish

Here's the tag "Old Dutch Muffin Ear circa 1810" -What the - I am simply enchanted with your Old Dutch Muffin Ear- with which my husband and I will certainly hear any muffin coming from a mile away.

Don't you think you've done enough notes for one day?

I hope so, all like you dear, with the same wild grace.

Why did you tell us?

I will allow none of you to criticize your father

What are we expected to do when he treats you-

Did you hear me Tracy?

All right, I give up

17

We just picked the wrong first husbands, that's all.

18

That's an extremely vulgar remark

Oh, who cares about either of them anymore- Golly Moses, I'm going to be happy now

19

Darling.

Isn't George an angel?

20

George is an angel

Is he handsome , or is he not?

21

George is handsome

Suds. I'm a lucky girl

Dinah: I like Dexter

Really? Why don't you ask him to lunch or something?
