Pretty as can be:
Ugly as all get out:
She’s a tired old girl. She’s seen some hard times.
But from the moment Nellie set eyes on my oldest Girlie, she wouldn’t leave her alone. My oldest Girlie, of course, adored her back. And so it began.
(That’s as direct a quote as I can remember, by the way!)
I’m planning to hang on to these pictures so that someday, when she has a child and wants to name her Nellie, I can talk her out of it.
I love ya, old gal, really.
