  7. She is really very familiar, it isn't just that she has such a friendly face and engaging look. Is she the neighbor who testified for Chaplin in his divorce trial, Darla Gladstone?

  13. Hooray! I can't believe I knew one; I never even guess but I always enjoy looking at the photos and finding out who they were. It was the comment that she looked so familiar that made me really start thinking WHO she looked like and so I cropped out everything except her eyes, nose and mouth and it helped.

  14. Bound4Glory, good detective work! I thought the background looked like a military base. I checked the American Red Cross and the wives, mothers and daughters of various generals...obviously to no avail. The uncropped
    photo can be found here...

  16. Congratulations, Bound4Glory!

    PJM, you will have that victory breakfast yet although I suspect you have been having wonderful breakfasts in any case with the production of all those delicious tasting vegetables.

  17. Good job, Bound4Glory! She looked familiar to me too, but I couldn't place her. Nice one!
