Something to do with the apparition on the stage: the wig, the wiggling bottom, the crude talk. Strange love! Yet from the quiver of Aphrodite, goddess of the foaming waves, no doubt about that. She does not resist. The flag now sat propped up in a chair next to hers.

Not just any chair, mind you, but the chair at the head of the table. From time to time, Bonnie would glance at the flag and then quickly press the hankie to her quivering mouth. Like now.
Of A' The Airts The Wind Can Blaw
Next to her, Frances, who at age thirty-five is the second eldest of Bonnie's stepchildren, gave a loud sigh of exasperation. Frances is something of the family expert on sighs of exasperation. Over the years, she's cultivated it into its present deep, melancholy, breathy sound. Hearing it, a stranger might legitimately expect to find that it originated from a kind of modern-day Marilyn Monroe rather than a dowdy plump woman with a penchant for tweed.
His passing is a blessing, really. He's in a better place now. Bonnie lowered her black hankie and peered in astonishment at Frances. How can you say that?
Frances blanched at this blunt, although apt, description of her father's whereabouts. Pursing her lips and studiously not looking at the flag, she tried again. He's at peace. Steely intonations have no effect on Frances's twin boys. Referred to by the rest of the family as Thing One and Thing Two, they respond only to threats and bribes. It is only a matter of time before stun guns are employed. Bonnie gave a loud sniff and raised the hankie back up to her eyes. Frances threw up her hands in defeat and looked beseechingly around the table at the rest of us.
Her gaze settled on her younger sister, Ann.

Catching her sister's eye, she jerked her head toward Bonnie's slumped form and hissed, "Do something! Hearing the exchange, Bonnie peeked up again from her soggy hankie. Ann aka Annabel is the youngest of the Reynolds siblings. In my opinion, she couldn't look more unlike her name. To me, the name Annabel conjures up an image of a curvy figure with masses of wavy, golden hair and a coy smile.
Ann is none of those things. She's trim, with short auburn hair and a direct, intelligent gaze. Ann obviously felt the same about her given name and long ago opted to shorten it to Ann. It was far more suitable, and in fact, no one ever called her anything but that. No one, that is, except Bonnie. At the sound of her given name, Ann winced slightly, the faint lines of exhaustion around her large hazel eyes making her look older than her thirty years. It's hard for all of us. But we need to be strong. Father would want us to celebrate his life rather than cry at his passing.
I applauded Ann's efforts, but the sad fact was that Martin Reynolds had been a dyed-in-the-wool workaholic. If we were to celebrate all his good times, we would either have to hold the party in his opulent board room or down at the bank. However, the idea appealed to Bonnie and she cautiously lowered the hankie. No doubt glad that the hankie had finally been cast aside, Ann nodded her head. Across the table, Frances added, "I'm sure of it. At thirty-seven, Reggie ran one of D. She's now, as she puts it, unaffiliated with a husband — hers or anyone else's.
But by no means is she through with the institution. Reggie attracts men the way butter pecan ice cream attracts me.
She's one of those women who are better-looking today than they were at twenty-one — and at twenty-one she was gorgeous. She's slim, toned, and still has all the right curves. Some of my closest friends still refuse to believe we're related. In fact, if we weren't related, I'd probably hate her. If I'm completely honest with myself, there likely would be a voodoo doll involved. Pushing a lock of her glossy black hair behind one ear, she said, "Let me know what I can do.
