The Trouble With Trimbles...
Is that they cannot agree on how to spend their money:
The Trimbles, mother and son... His dreams are of a red convertible, hers of a new typewriter.
Photo of Mrs. Pearl Carter Trimble and her son Carter Trimble from an article on the "mother & son writer-photographer team" inside the march 1951 issue of Profitable Hobbies magazine
, which we assume stopped making a profit decades ago.
Yes, I know there are unfortunate holes in the vintage paper; let's just be glad we can see what we can.

It's Not My Mom
This looks like my mom, but it's not; this lady's name was Jeri and she was famous. I don't know her. But I do know my mom.
It's a small photo, just like the ones you give away to your friends in school. Only I didn't get this from Jeri herself (I told you I don't know her
); I got it with some other vintage photos of famous people. That explains why it's not signed on the back with a note for me to 'stay sweet' (which I did) or how fun I was in math class (which I was).
If you know who this lady is -- even if she's not your mom -- please let me know.
