There are two women with two different dresses and a picture behind them. Early 1900’s, it’s fall. Let’s call them Joyce and Ben. It’s tough to tell which one is a woman or a man. One is man and one is a woman, for sure. The one on the left is a woman. The one on the right is a man. They are hanging out, just standing there.
I think there are two ladies, mother and daughter, from high society. You can tell because they are dressed like they are from high society. I think your right! They may be on vacation in Florida on the beach. That’s where my brother used to be. For all we know they may have known each other for years.
These two people could do anything they wanted to do. They could be Medical Core Doctors, Battalion Officers, 3 companies in Battalion core. Brigade, Company, Division, Doctors, 5 Battalions, 3 Brigades. Many officers, O5.
I think they might enjoy just sitting on the beach. If she’s smiling she’s kind of happy. They are feeling content, relaxed, there on vacation. The younger girl smiles because the older girl says, “They wrong shoes for on the beach.” They did not have flip-flops! The man on the right side acts like a boss. He’s saying something to the lady but she’s just smiling. They are just getting together and have not figured out what to do yet.
They are in the park, enjoying an afternoon, looks rather peaceful, does not look too busy. A peaceful afternoon in the park. They are dreaming about their specialty Doctors on the front line in the combat zone. It’s different for Army, Navy, and Air Force.
There’s no one else there with them. They are alone on the beach. Next a big wave is going to come in and it’s either going to crash over them or drown them or they could get knocked down. You would hear the women falling. The husband would decide whether or not the wives are worth saving! I would hear screaming, ocean, waves, sea gulls (several people make different sea gull sounds). We would smell saltwater, hot dogs on the boardwalk. They might jump in the ocean.
