By the storytellers of Havenwood
Well, aren't they lovely!
They like hats - beautiful hats!
Beautiful everything, the whole outfit.
They are old-fashioned ladies - they look like the 1800s.
Evelyn and Shirley
They are on the porch - under the umbrella - there's a great big house or apartments behind them.
What is under their feet? It looks like dirt or sand.
They almost look like they are on a swing - it could be hitched to something. Evelyn is holding onto the rail like she's swinging.
They're probably cousins.
They feel good about each other, they look like they love one another, they are proud of each other.
Evelyn is older.
When I look at her I see her shirt is much longer than the other one so I think she's taller.
Evelyn looks like she has a more aggressive attitude.
She's telling her she shoulda bought a bat.
They're in swings and they like 'em.
They have snow and sand under their feet.
Evelyn's right hand looks like it's on a swing.
Before this, they put on their lovely hats.
I think somebody dropped them off - their father.
I don't think it's an automobile.
A wagon - but there are no marks: I feel they came from the other side, they went backwards to sit down.
They were looking at the wagon taking off, the person that dropped them there.
Shirley's petticoat is showing! She has a pin on her blouse.
I think the hat was too big on her head - it's almost down to her eyes.
They have done this before and they enjoyed it so they tried it again.
They want to find a man - a handsome man! - and he better be proper!
They come from a very proper home and they must look that way.
They enjoy being proper - looking like they were fancy.
They come out on the porch and meet people.
They like to go and see elephants at the zoo.
They like people.
They like to swing - it's obvious that they enjoy it.
If they see a man, they follow him with their eyes.
Maybe Shirley's looking at the man and the other one is sayin' "hey, wait a minute, look at the other one up here, he's better!"
Next, they don't look very happy - they've been there too long.
They're bored - they don't want to keep doing this.
They want to go home.
They're looking for somebody to pick 'em up.
Or they're disgusted at what they're looking at.
They're dressed well - it's very fancy.
Shirley's too fancy: it's hanging over her eyes - somebody put flowers on her hat - she doesn't dare take it off!
Evelyn is very proud of her hat.
I see her leg and something's hitched to the leg but I don't know what - and there's no other leg.
That could be why their expression is what it is!
