Pages from my great grand mothers scrapbook reveal the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – where she wrote in the pages of a now yellowing scrapbook, the first entry from 1893, I now post here on this blog. 

Here is one of my favorites so far:

To keep the lip

From many a slip,

Five things observe with care
Of whom you speak, 

to whom you speak, 

and how, and when, and where.
