Something fell out of the closet and hit me on the head today. No, it wasn’t a brilliant idea… it was this:
My mother’s Oak Bluffs High School diploma from June 18, 1926.
But that’s not all that hit me on the head. There was this work of art:
A certificate in PENMANSHIP. Do they even teach penmanship anymore!
Look at the details.
“..for the attainment of excellence in Rapid Muscular Movement…” I’m not even sure what that means !!
The wax seal makes it look very official and the ribbons add a nice touch.
And my mother did indeed have beautiful penmanship.
