{Timeless Style} Thanksgiving at the Governor’s Mansion

Talk about going cold turkey. This fab photo was snapped in 1959 at the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee, Florida. The photo is of Florida Governor LeRoy Collins’s 9-year-old daughter, Darby (now an FOF!) on Thanksgiving. Governor Collins and his family were the first to live in the Governor’s Mansion. The 1959 Thanksgiving was the second-ever Thanksgiving celebrated there.

    Cute picture! Darby is a sweet, sweet lady. Attended the F.S.U. Deconstration School with her when this pic was taken. Our class was invited to view the “new” governor’s mansion-her dad, LeRoy, was the finest man to occupy that office. Her mother, Mary Call Collins was a true southern lady/steel magnolia.

      Great review-sounds like a rellay interesting review. I’d love to read it and compare it to Kingsolver’s book. Am I allowed’ to be in the draw even though I live north of the border? If I were to win, it could always go to my in-laws for a while Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
