    How I hated having cloth wraps to make ringlets, but they did look nice.

    Being an American living near the Jell-O Museum, I at first thought this was Jell-O!

    We were excited to see that these two little girls were located by the Courier Mail newspaper and featured last week in a story about this year's Ekka. Their names - Yvonne Donald (nee Le Sueur) and Fay Stubbs (nee Le Sueur). They were aged 6 and 8 when the photo was taken. Yvonne noted in the article that it was their first time at the show and that their mother had made their matching dresses.
