Valentine’s Day, 1941

Friday, February 14th, 1941

Right after work we decorated the ballroom and it looked beautiful.  Jakey came for me and gave me a corsage when we got home. He also sent me a lovely valentine.  We got to the Sheraton a little after nine. We had such a crowd and a grand one. My gown looked beautiful and I wore my lace mantilla all evening and received many compliments.  Jakey had a quart of Scarlett O’Hara in the car and we (Jimmy Veale, Fabby Notuis) dispatched of it in short order.


What a fabulous sounding night, and I can find no pictures.  Trust me, I searched.  I bet I will run across some some day.  Until then, I’ll just have to use my imagination.
