Christmas Gifts for Verona
It was the era of the depression during Vern and Verona's teen years. Mother remembers two gifts that Dad gave her for Christmas. "One year Vern came carrying a large box. I unwrapped it only to find another box, then another! The boxes kept getting smaller and smaller until it was the size of a ring box, only it wasn't a ring, it was a locket! I was so thrilled and so happy. Another Christmas he gave me a wine colored suede jacket. I don't know where he got the money because they were about as poor as we were!"
I have no idea if Mother is wearing the jacket she refers to in this picture. Maybe Gary knows? Does it look like a suede jacket to you?
