Quote of the Week

My parents. Christmas 1962. Dad bought the midnight blue velvet dress, and crystal earrings and necklace for mother. He said he wanted her to have nice things. He was a husband who complimented when she got her hair done. I never heard dad criticize mother in her appearance.

“A compliment is something like a kiss through a veil.”

By Victor Hugo [1802-1885]
