Has It Happened Again, PennyD?
This is a "Twice Told Tuesday" told twice, but this year on Wednesday. A story told to you last year by a very special guest and reprinted because it and the subject are my favorites. A birthday celebration and another year PennyD!
Miss Penelope and your Shades and Curator fans want to share this special day with you. A Curator, as you have learned, is a person responsible for managing, organizing and preserving historical and treasured items. You have always been good at keeping things. You certainly have the experience for this since you've hung on to friends, animals, letters, pictures, clothes, and even an old pork chop bone which we found under your bed. I wonder what the history of that bone would have been? I hate to imagine.
As far as Miss Penelope is concerned, I am sure she was first born during the many childhood books you read and the stories which you heard from your Grandma Arline. In fact, sometimes I believe you are talking about your Grandma and all the adventures she had and the men who had been in her life.
I will never be sorry now that I dumped 5 large boxes of Mama's pictures and letters on you when I moved to Arizona.
I think Mama knew that her life in the early 1900's would be of interest to others in this day and age. Mama would be thrilled that you have shared her life with others in such a unique way.
Have a Great Birthday and never stop your writing as you continue to enrich and entertain others.
Mom is the beautiful Suzanne. Denise Levenick (Penelope Dreadful and The Family Curator) is her daughter.
Your happy birthday now is here.
I hope you're well and hearty! If I lived near you, my dear,
I'd surprise you with a party.
We lift our glasses!
