These ladies have on ugly hats. They are
unique black hats with red roses and carnations. One is shaped like a cowboy boot with little
creatures on top. A friend said to them,
“I’d never wear it”, another friend said, “I wouldn’t either!”
Maryann is quiet and simple and more
American than Cleopatra. She is the
sweeter type. Cleopatra is older than
Maryann and more stern. They live in
Alaska. They went to school together and
now study and work in the library.
