Poor Cousin Philomena Durchfallen was the first person that our family knew of who used the phrase “Bad Hair Day.”  She used it a lot.

Great Aunt Ida did as she pleased.

Great Aunt Ida was a founding member of the local Polar Bear Club.  She swore by those brisk swims, and they may have been something to it as she was 192 when this picture was taken.  She died 6 years later not from old age but from an errant current that swept or downstream to her end.
