Too Much Powdering Your Nose I love this image. The little collars and cardigans, skirts and mod flips, the coiled phone cord, the more mature, white-nosed woman whose fingers cover the “ic” so that it reads just Panhellen. I like to think that’s her name. Panhellen. Brilliant! Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

Did you notice the smiles increase in the picture from left to right. Interesting. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It is a spectrum of smiles indeed! I had not even noticed the baby shoe. Ha! I was so busy trying to tell myself she was not doing cocaine. LikeLike Reply lol. The other white face powder. LikeLiked by 1 person Yes! And I KNEW you would notice the dogs! LikeLiked by 1 person Even though I am currently living a cat-lifestyle, I am also a dog lover at heart. Fortunately my sisters have multiple dogs they are willing to share. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you for always making me laugh, Kerbey! If you decided to pursue a PhD in History, you would have the world’s best dissertation. Way more fun than my friend’s dissertation that he’s doing on the history of Afghan-American immigrants. Although there is a cool story about a fake (or was she real? I think she ended up being legit) Afghan princess coming to San Francisco in the 20’s that played out soap-opera style in the San Francisco Chronicle. He needed to use the UCSD library to access their digitized archives, so I got a heads up on his weird dissertation topic! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That is amazingly specialized. I know nothing of Af-Am immigrants, although I did do a post on how Afghan men dye their beards red, out of respect to the prophet Mohammed. Glad I made you laugh! LikeLike Reply I know, I thought that was weird too! The funny thing is that most fields require your dissertation to be a publishable piece of original research. In stuff like the sciences, where we keep discovering new stuff, it doesn’t get as weird. In things like history, you’re stuck with focusing on either very recent history that hasn’t been written about yet, or you go extremely, extremely specialized! I didn’t know about the red beards. That’s pretty cool! LikeLiked by 1 person That look although “dated” now looked and still looks so neat and “put together”. Not like today’s free for all. And I believe that is a picture of my Aunt; Panhelen. So you’re correct. She was a College Administrator for several years until her fondness for chalk powder took her down. Such a dreadful tale. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You crack me up. Your Aunt Panhelen probably had so much chalk dust in her lungs, it was hard to breathe.

A woodshop accident? It’s like she was about to do that trick where it looks like you cut your thumb off. Maybe she just filed them WAY down. LikeLike Reply EEEK! I think they are really Zombies dressed up to fool us! Run! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply My back is already thrown out. I cannot run. I will just get eaten. LikeLike Reply If you show up with a hair-do as above and missing fingers, I’ll know they got you Kerbey. LikeLiked by 1 person I think that’s what those girls did when asked to rate their advisor at the end of the school year, Kerbey. Panhellen. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply D’oh!
