Autographs (3)

Here is another selection from my late aunt Sheila's autograph book.

First, an image from 1929 - they made such an effort then.

And some text entries.

   In a room there were three,
   He, the little lamp, and she.
   Two is company no doubt,
   So the little lamp went out.

       Tis love that makes the world go round.
       Upon this thought I linger:
       Tis love that makes a ring fit round
       A girl's engagement finger.

(Don't try saying this quickly after a glass or two.)

            Oh! The gladness of her gladness when she's glad,
            And the sadness of her sadness when she's sad.
            But the gladness of her gladness
            And the sadness of her sadness
            Are nothing to her BADNESS when she's BAD!

I don't know the history behind this, but I can guess.

     All good girls love their brothers,
     But Sheila so good has grown,
     She loves someone else's brother
     Far better than her own.


Twas in a restaurant they met,
Romeo and Juliet.
T'was there that Romeo fell in debt,
For Romeoed what Juliet.

And finally, this is from an apparent fan in 1935. I'm not a dog person but am bewitched by it.

Thanks very much for your visit.
