    "Heredity" from Angelfire.

    I saw a duck the other day.
    It had the feet of my Aunt Faye.
    Then it walked, was heading South.
    It waddled like my Uncle Ralph.
    And when it turned, I must propose,
    Its bill was formed like Aunt Jane's nose.
    I thought, "Oh, no! It's just my luck,
    Someday I'll look just like a duck!"

    I sobbed to Mom about my fears,
    And she said, "Honey, dry your tears.
    You look like me, so walk with pride.
    Those folks are all from Daddy's side."

  9. Calling all Rosies the Riveters! American Rosie the Riveter Association is attempting to locate women who worked on the homefront during World War II in order to preserve their stories as supporters of the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, makers of clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, bandage rollers, clerical, farming and volunteer workers collecting scrap metal and more. The association would like to acknowledge these women with certificates and place their stories in its archives. If you are a woman (or descendant of a woman) who worked during World War II, call 888-557-6743 or email americanrosietheriveter2@yahoo.com.
