"Just Ask Judy" blog (link on the right) inspired me to post this picture.
The roaring 20s gal on the right is my father's only sister, Bee - short for Beatrice. At the time of the picture she worked for Southern Bell. By all the pictures I have seen of her of those times, she was dressed to be a "Thorough Modern Millie" kind of girl.
It must have paid off. She married a man that owned half of downtown Marietta. They had five children and adopted two more. They lived in a big house and it was big enough to hold bodies of my grandparents' caskets for wakes or whatever (different years).
Back in the late 40s and 50s I remember she always drove a hawg of a Caddy. She always had a downhome appeal about her with a very thick southern accent.
One thing I never could figure out, her and her kids would take their vacations to Florida, separate from her husband.
She smoked with the flair of a movie star. She was born in 1903 and died in 1971 of cancer.
