ELEANOR AND SHIRLEY

Shirley Temple was born in 1928 and was a child star. SHE WAS THE DARLING OF ALMOST EVERYONE BUT NOT ELEANOR ROOSEVELT. Temple and her parents traveled to Washington, D.C. late in 1935 to meet President Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor. The presidential couple invited the Temple family to a cook-out at their home in Hyde Park, New York where Eleanor, bending over an outdoor grill, was hit smartly in the rear with a pebble from the slingshot Temple carried everywhere in her little lace purse .

Poor Eleanor--she was a fine lady. I guess Shirley might have been related to us.
