  1. Sandra, did David ever tell you that Grandma Goebel had quite a fetish for hats? Sadly, I’ve never looked good in hats.

    1. no. he has never told me that, but as you mention in reference to yourself & hats, i do not look good in them either, which may be another way of saying that i can’t carry them off. still, i collected them!

    1. thanks, renee. i never could wear them… but it didn’t stop me from desiring them. they are going one by one & people seem happy to get them, which is the most anyone can ask for when they ‘let go’.
