George and Martha Washington Cut-Outs.

February 19, 1922.  Celebrate George Washington's birthday with these cut-outs of Martha and George.  I have ancestors that lived in Virginia, now West Virginia, that are in many records with George Washington back when he was a very young surveyor.  A brother of one of my great-greats was Washington's chain-carrier.

BRENDA STARR's Weekend Wardrobe 1941

July 6, 1941.  I hope you enjoy BRENDA STARR and Her Weekend Wardrobe.

I am so mad at my cats.  About three months ago they jumped up on the desk and knocked my printer/scanner off and broke it.  It was just a very cheap HP model that only cost $19 but it made great copies and the scanner worked fine.  So I decided to buy a more expensive model thinking it would make even better copies and scans - wrong!  It prints okay but is a terrible scanner.  I will have a very clean black and white paper doll then when I scan it all the details become black blobs.  Drat those darn cats!!
