More Lil

Great Aunt Lil never married. That is not to say that she didn’t have her beaus and crushes throughout her life. She never met that one person that epitomized the high ideals that she set for herself. Of all of the stories Aunt Lil shared, the ones about Jack were my favorites. She would always tell stories about him. He was kind, well mannered, a gentleman and exceedingly rich. She was his main interest during the late 1930’s and early 1940’s. As she said often, he would arrive unexpectedly and sweep her off her feet to travel to some exotic location. He always came visiting dressed in formal attire. He would take her to the classiest of restaurants, drive her around in his Porsche and introduced her to many wealthy and famous people. Personally I always thought he had some connection with organized crime. She recounted how she enjoyed his dashing presence and all of the places he took her, but she never quite was able to make that leap to marriage. It all ended when Jack went off to War in 1944 and was killed in action.

Most of the other flings that she shared with us were very short lived. Her suitor was either too shy, conservative, liberal, self-centered, unclean, unfunny or connected with the wrong people. It was difficult to please her.

About hdh

I have been telling stories for over 35 years. As a retired teacher, I hope to expand upon my repertoire and use this blog as a place to do writing. The main purpose is to give me and others that choose to comment, a space in which to play with issues that deal with storytelling, storytelling ideas, storytelling in education, reactions to events, etc. I will also explore some of my own writing, from character analysis to fictional and personal stories. Enjoy!
