Wordless Wednesday: Presidents Day Edition

In honor of Calvin Coolidge.  He retired to the presidency to the town where the little girl on the left lived; when he saw her walking downtown, he'd pat her on the head and say, "Hello, little red haired girl."  She was 9 when he retired.  Of course, Silent Cal was red haired, too, which may be why he expended so many words on her.

The little girl grew up to be my mother in law.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Cute story! The girl on the right could double for my youngest cousin. Never mind the drastic span of years... truly, the faces are very similar. I'll have to find and scan a photo of her at roughly that age.

Fun story. Being a red head has some advantages :-) Diane

Her red-headed gene certainly made itself known down the line. Great story.
