Elizabeth Kenney… This is Your Life!!!! With some additional commentary provided
Born Elizabeth Jane Short On March 11 th , 1945 The oldest of the Short football team…
As she grew older, Elizabeth assumed a number of different names to different people:
Elizabeth Jane” to some Just as long as she didn’t use the upstairs bathroom. THAT was reserved for company. And JFK, if he ever stopped by Or the Pope could use it Oh yes--and Gene (Not necessarily in that order)
“ Elizabeth” to others Or when on the phone: “ Elizabeth…(long pause)…Mother”
Or even “ Lizzie” to this man… Prisoner 3456789
As she grew older, Betty’s life was filled with the joys of a frivolous and carefree childhood. She would cast away her days engaged in such fun activities like: (Try to notice the distinct Short feature in the picture)
<ul><li>Delivering papers. </li></ul>2. Babysitting for free 3. Changing her brother’s diapers:
And her sister’s diaper And her other brother’s diapers And her other sister’s diapers And her other brother’s And her other sister’s And so on… And so on… And on… And on…
Later on, Betty entered high school as a bright woman with a great sense of style. Here Betty sports a lovely ensemble sporting the “I-Have-Routes-To-Do-And-It-Is-Dark-When-I-Get-Up” look.
In school, Betty grappled with the important questions that confront all good Catholic school students. Such as:
<ul><li>Why are there no “things” in biology? </li></ul><ul><li>How many “Hail Mary’s” do I have to say if I think I killed Charlie before I left for school? </li></ul><ul><li>If I bring one banana in my purse to church and Peggy brings two, how many bananas do we need to wake up Tom when he falls asleep during the sermon? </li></ul><ul><li>Do Nun’s wear underwear? </li></ul><ul><li>When we walk to the front pew on Sunday after delivering papers, why do people look at us sadly and offer us money on their way out? </li></ul>
As Elizabeth grew older, she became a beautiful woman with an active social life.
And fell in love with… This rebellious “cowboy” actually led the exciting life as a math major. He and his other “hoodlums” could be found daily at the local Mister Donut drinking coffee late into the early hours of the afternoon talking about math, math theory, and the properties of math, all the while mocking those who still do not understand how the derivative of 4x is 4. He and his buddies grappled with the tough questions like: What was the name of Gene Autry’s horse? What was the Lone Ranger’s real name? And if Annette the Mousketeer were to walk into Mr. Donut, which of them would she date?
But fall in love she did. Soon, the two of them were engaged and married.
Her wedding day was one of the happiest of her life. Here, Betty shares a warm moment with her father as he asks if Gene can pick up some tires on the way to the church. He also wanted to know if Franc could come on their honeymoon.
Here is the happy couple as they march down the aisle… Gene thinks to himself: “Wait until I tell the guys at Mr. Donut about THIS!”
