Four of Hearts: 1943

Entertaining their guests

What an excellent follow-up to the previous post! Hilarious that they both have the very same caption. And, if I may, where is the third couple? Oh, I really do hope there'll be more in this series.

Patriotic girls

Just doin' their part for the war effort by keeping up moral at home.

Mom. . .
