Cornelia lost her pearls, and I've got mine






It'll be one's birthday,
with any luck, within a
few hours; and as much
as I don't think I could
assimilate another gift,
I know where my treasures
are. This takes practice,
but as many times as I've
watched the junior Miss
Bullock, taunting her sis-
ter for misplacing an un-
insured treasure, I see
no more than the sport of
sibling rivalry, in which
the tables turn too often
to expect ever to see what
nobody wants - a winner.

Of the many things a pure
delight cannot repay to Car-
ole Lombard, surely her re-
siliency in that sometimes
very dusty struggle defies
every barrier scattered, to
split the classes and gen-
ders, the wages and sages  
as losing squads. Treasure.
