It looks like my grandmother!
Looks like they’re at the beach.
They’re two very special friends.
The picture looks old, like it was taken 100 years ago.
Looks like a comfortable chair.
I think they’re students, because they’re dressed the same. When I was a child, we wore similar dresses. Or they’re waiters and work in a restaurant.
They look like a woman and a man, but I don’t know if they’d allow a man.
Look at the hat he’s wearing!
Maybe they’re husband and wife.
They met because they were in the pool together.
They met in classes. I think they’re resting.
The man on the right is George. The other is Rose—she looks like me.
She’s very beautiful; they’re both beautiful.
They’re in a special place to rest, not at home. They’re not sitting on regular chairs.
They’re next to the swimming pool.
Rose is smiling, because she’s younger; the other is older.
Older, because it’s a man.
It looks like they’re sitting at the dock on a beach.
Rose has a nice hat.
The younger one is the daughter, the older one is the mother.
With that hat on, it’s gotta be a man. That is a full-sized view!
They look happy to me.
They’re thinking about how wonderful it is to be in the swimming pool.
They’re talking about the nice weather.
They’re talking about their work.
The mother is worried about the daughter, but the daughter is happy and smiling.
When you’re young, a mother is always worried about her children.
Love the hat! Look how high it is!
I don’t like the mother’s hat. The girl has a nice hat.
They’re sitting in the shade. The kids are playing outside.
They’re worried about their feet in the dirt, in the mess;they’re wearing small shoes.
They don’t like to go in the sand with long skirts.
There’s an empty chair.
Maybe they’re keeping the chair empty with the expectation that someone’s coming.
The empty chair is used by a much taller person.
The empty chair might have been used by the grandmother. She went to the bathroom.
I think the father is coming to sit down. They’re preparing the chair for him.
The young girl is going to get married. They’re waiting for the father for a family meeting to talk about the wedding.
I hear the sound of water; it smells like salt water.
The thing that’s fabulous is the hat! It’s so high, that combination.
Rose is wearing a hat also; it’s almost covering her eyes and face.
Lunch is next: bagels, lox and cream cheese.
If there’s a wedding, I’ll make a filled cabbage for them.
I had enough cabbage in the concentration camps. No more cabbage.
They’ll have champagne for l’chaim!
