When I was 16, my great-grandmother gave me her copy of the book “Emily Post’s Etiquette.” It was rather warn from use, but still a beautiful book. Blue cover………yellowed pages……..I was thrilled to receive such an important book for my birthday. Tucked inside was a note to me from my great-grandmother about the importance of manners. She informed me that with good manners, I could go anywhere I wanted to in life. And she would know……..after her death at the age of 99 we learned that she was raised on an Indian reservation in Canada. She ran away and came to the United States and eventually became the society woman that I always knew her to be.
