Sepia Saturday - Ship Talk
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."
My father could recite these and other lines from Lewis Carroll's famous poem "The Walrus and the Carpenter," by memory even though it was years since he learned it in school. He would recite them whenever there was a big change or transitional period in our family. I'm certain he recited them on New Year's Eve too.
Happy New Year everyone!

Stopped in Newburyport last night and came here today. Cool weather for the time of year. Hope you are well. The Brewster House has been sold to Sawer Wollen Co. for their Super to live in. Hays are to get out in six weeks. Loveingly H.P.
