Lou was a cool chick! She was full of adventure and followed her husband around the world, often wearing a pistol in a holster when they were in dicey areas. The Hoovers did a great deal of humanitarian work that they really don't get enough credit for. History has given the Hoovers a bum rap. And I LOVE that afghan!! Are you going to try it, Denise? It's on my list of things...okay, I have to wait until next summer, or maybe after I graduate. Speaking of school--gotta run!
