Manny’s birthday book – October 24

October 24, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  October 24th – Ronald Jackson

Little fairy in a shell, sailing o’er the sea!

Wither are you coming? Perhaps to visit me,

Where, then, do you come from, o’er the stormy main?

Little fairy, how I trust you’ll get back safe again.

Ronald Jackson was Manny’s son in law.  You can see him in the wedding photo in the header – 5th from the Left in the back row.
