Laura's Recent Updates

Laura and 3 other people liked Hana's status update
Hana
Hana is on page 163 of 207 of Elizabeth and Her German Garden: [Minora] proposed, first of all, to teach us a dance called, I think, the Washington Post....We remained untouched by its beauties, each buried in an easy-chair toasting our toes at the fire. Amongst those toes were those of the Man of Wrath, who sat peaceably reading a book and smoking....'Do let me teach you. Won't you try, Herr Sage?....Oh come, put away that tiresome old book,' she went on gaily..." Oh no, oh no!
