CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

WHICH LOU LOSES?

One night, while watching CHEERS, the following limerick “appeared” in my head, and I jotted it down before I could forget it. Perhaps it was my muse inspiring me!

~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

My parents did name me Lou,

I was named for my dad, Lou,

We are two Lous,

Which of us Lous,

Will lose the race to the loo?

  1. Carolyn, your story of Madame Rosalie Bacler de la Val and her intertwined life and loves in the relatively newly created country of America is very interesting. I was reading your character description of her and was curious to follow some of your links. I was struck by a traditional description of her,written in a Lamoine, Maine periodical, that she was known to “tramp about her extensive property and mansion, attired in men’s garb, personlly supervising ongoing construction.” Knowing she had escaped the horrors of the
    French Revolution, inferring that she may have been very aware of the pre-revolutionary affectations of the noble and wealthy classes who adopted a “back to nature” philosophy espoused by Rousseau and taken to absurd lengths by the queen of France, Marie Antoinette. Madame de la Val may have had no difficulty at all, taking a hands on attitude with her workman in comfortable, working attire. As you have inferred, she was quite a woman in her time. In 1790 I don’t many think many women would have found themselves in her position, let alone rolling up her shirtsleeves, and tramping through the countryside and woods to get the job done.
