              From the Library of Congress, 1920.

          What Will Mrs. Thompson Say?

Here are two Double Point Friday Mrs. Thompsons for the price of one.

1. Should the young man escort the girl home and take her key and unlock the door for her, or should he only go as far as the front gate, or the front driveway, or the front steps to the porch?
2. Should she give him the key to her house?  If so, as they start out on their date, or when they approach her house after the date?
3. Will a handshake do when it is time to say "good-night." especially if he has never taken her home before?

What can Blue Eyes do to help solve this problem?

As mentioned earlier, each correct answer will be worth a whopping 40 points.


INNOCENT
1. He should escort his girl to the DOOR.
2.The girl shall hand the man the key to her door as they reach the door at the end of their fun.
3. A handshake do.

BAD VISION BLUE EYES
You do have a problem.  Write him a letter. Prior to mailing it ask for someone to review your envelope for mailing. It may be best to talk with someone from the Post Office or your mail man. You may be making some type of error. ::)

1. Go all the way and unlock the door.
2  Give the keys only when you are at the house approaching the door.
3.  Hand shake is ok, a wink might be better.

Blue Eyes needs to go see him directly.

Thank you @Bart Ell, @juan, @Mr Apnea, @anniem, @ShayP, @FISH and @Ciardelo for playing the What Will Mrs. Thompson Say? game.

1. Up to the door and unlock it for her.
2. She can give him the key when they set off.  But it works just as well if she keeps the key until the end of the date, at which time he can unlock the door for her.
3. Shaking hands is fine.  Also a cheerfully spoken "Keep in touch." is nice to hear.

Mrs. Thompson is of the opinion that a return address would help Blue Eyes know if her letters are being sent to the correct place or not.  (If the letters are returned, her beaux has given her an incorrect address.)

Where are your manners, sir?  A gentleman always removes his hat when indoors and stop leaning on my table.

It's just a little non-compete contract. Go ahead and sign it.

The planchette doesn't lie, Mavis.
If it spells out B-L-O-W-H-I-M then who are we to deny the Ouija board?

No! I'll roll your finger across the paper. If you do it, you'll smear the fingerprint.

Is Dr. Steven Haughlin your plastic surgery? Look at what he did to Michael Jackson’s face. Do you really want that whittled-down nose and lightened skin?
