“She’s not a flower

She’s not a pearl,

But she’s a jolly

All around girl.”

That was the inscription under my Mom’s senior picture in her 1941 yearbook.

You wouldn’t dare write inscriptions today. It would cause too much drama!

I cannot even imagine there being high school drama in the 1940’s… after all there was WWII…..  And the Great Depression was pretty fresh in everyone’s memory at that time.   Talk about drama.  Kids today have to create their own drama.  Back then, it was already there.

And just to set the record straight…. she was a pearl.

“She’s not a flower, She’s not a pearl, But she’s a jolly, all around girl”
