I love the hats! They came from Germany. These two ladies should have German names, I guess. One is named Fancy and let’s name the other one Betty, it’s such a common name. They don’t know each other...or maybe they do. They have the same type of hat, after all. These hats come from the dime store in Germany.
Fancy and Betty get along; they’re sisters. They do look alike, like twins. They are waiting for someone to pick them up, or for their turn. They’re all dressed up and ready to be picked up by their family.
They’re going out to dinner, or going home. But something’s not right...they’re going somewhere. To a playhouse, or to a play...or to church. They look rather churchy. They have their capes and hats on.
Fancy and Betty are from New York; there are a lot of people that come in from New York. It’s 1960 and now they’re in Arcadia, waiting to go to San Francisco. They’re thinking about going to church with their hats on. Or perhaps about going out to dinner. San Francisco is a good place to go for dinner!
They have parents: Francine is their mother, and their father is named John. They also have sisters.
Fancy and Betty are very serious. They look pretty sober – like shoppers. They’re not acting silly! They don’t look like missionaries, that’s for sure! They look like they’re in a play. They’ll go down to a playhouse because they’re in a play. They are actresses and they put on serious, old-fashioned plays.
Next, they’ll go out to dinner, just the two of them. They’ll have hamburgers. Then they’ll see a play, the one about the lost relatives.
