Canary Legs

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandma (Mary) Carter attended school through the eighth grade in Lake Shore. In seventh grade she was "little and skinny,” to use her words. One time the girls in her class went outside to have “gym” (physical education). They were in their gym shorts. Some of the boys spotted her legs. Much to her dismay from then on they called her “canary legs.” But she said, “As I got older my freckles weren’t quite so prominent and sort of faded; and I did become, not too bad looking.”
