Great aunt Maude, the milliner; my paternal grandmother, Corrie (who  died when my father was 21); and great aunt Katye. My great great grandfather, Lucius Kelly, of Monticello, Georgia, sent all his six daughters to college.

Bud and me painting

Bud, my maternal grandfather, and me, at 8, painting his fence my grandmother’s favorite color, turquoise blue. The most famous product of the chemical company he owned in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was an industrial soap called Flash. I have the very last jar of the shocking pink  powder in my closet. Flash could remove even turquoise blue paint from your hands, and if you didn’t watch it, your skin.
