New Church Bell

Oh Henry, I so enjoyed our dinner together yesterday!! I did also Emily, I thought it went quite well. Mother took such a shine to Victoria. Your Mother was so kind to offer to watch Victoria while I am working with you at the bank. I am sure they will get along fine my darling. Yes I agree with you Henry. After work today I am going to take the measurements for the new dress I offered to make for your Mother. A new dress? Yes Henry for the Saint Valentines Party the church is holding to raise money for the new bell. Emily will you be sewing three new frocks? Three? As I will be asking you and Victoria to attend as my guests. Oh My sweet Henry,you are too kind,of course we will attend with you. You are aware all of the single ladies are making box lunches to be raffled off . The single men make bids and the highest bidder gets the lunch and the honor of sharing it with the lady who prepared it. Really I was not aware of this. Will you be making a box lunch. Oh my, of course as all the funds raised with also go to the church for the bell. I see!! Henry is something the matter?? Of course not Emily,I was just wondering how many others will be bidding on your box. Henry sometimes you are so funny.

oh Henry is showing some jealousy! Good thing he has a lot of money.
We should do this box lunch thing for a youth fundraiser...
