We're two sisters who are craft book publishers and found ourselves in the midst of an avocado grove. We bought this house where we planned to conduct our publishing business and in the deal got 4 acres of avocado trees thrown in. Now we're not only publishers but ranchers as well! This blog is all about avocados and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Am I Suspicious or What? - (Sepia Saturday)
I recently purchased this yearbook. I mainly wanted it because it was from the year of my birth and also it has some fabulous tipped in chapter headings which I just couldn't resist.
So I paid my $3.00 and happily carried it home. Then I started to read it and wow! Did I discover some interesting things about Margaret Hilton, the owner and her science teacher, Mr. McDaniel.
He wrote the most puzzling autograph. If a teacher had written this to my 9th grade daughter, I'd be really suspicious and wonder what in the heck was going on. I think I'd be on my way to the principal's office.
See what you think.
It's too small and fuzzy to read so I'll translate it for you:
You used to think I didn't like you, but it seems that I did. I don't know of any good reason why I should. If I had my way I would probably want some changes made in your disposition, but, I suppose you would probably like to see some changes in mine. When things are all totaled up I guess we're both not so bad. I have to laugh when I look back at some of the screwy things that happened in 1st and 3rd period. I sure do want to get a look at some of the 9th grade brats after they get out of high school and I get out of the Navy. I wonder if you will still be stubborn and Sally will still be full of the dickens. I guess this is enough. Luck and so forth to you.
Here's the culprit. Wonder why he's holding a stick. Maybe because he teaches General Science.
Hmmm. Don't you just wonder what this was all about? I'm sure it was pretty innocent or he wouldn't have written in her yearbook.
But then Johnny France wrote on this page:
Best of luck only watch out for McD. Have a good time (as if you won't).
You may be a nut and a screwball and all that but I still think you are a swell kid. Don't forget our good time we had teasing Mr. McDaniels (if you could forget).

Here's wishing you a lot of luck and no more trouble with Mr. McDaniels.
Here's a picture of Margaret, if you can see her. She's in the 4th row, second from left. She was pretty. I can imagine that maybe Mr. McDaniel might have had a crush on her. Purely innocent, of course. And there's Mr. McDaniel right in the front row. He was kind of cute, don't you think?
