A Family Saga

Poor cousin Winky tried to go on and act like nothing had changed, but she was never really the same after Aunt Marvelle expelled her from the Tri Tones. It's not as if there was much she could say, not after Marvelle stumbled on that little scene with Uncle Waldo in the vestry.

"That pert baggage," said Marvelle later, on learning of her niece's solo release, "would have been better off learning to say 'I don't.'"


  1. Pert baggage or not, I don't think it was the indiscretion with Uncle Waldo that got Winky bounced.

    I'm inclined to believe that it was Winky's use of Simplicity 6036 and Marvelle's Singer Stylist Zig-Zag Sewing Machine, without even asking...and damn her for using all the eyelet lace trim that I was saving to trim my cafe curtains in the kitchen.
