Hot times in Toledo!

"Connie" to the thousands who knew her - was born to Gilbert Henry Morman and Norma Elizabeth Beutler in the 107-degree heat of July 15, 1934: an occasion of which her mother would remind her annually on her birthday. It was high noon when she came into the world, and the entire town of Ottawa, Ohio, knew of her arrival, because they could smell the ether wafting down the street as they walked home from St. Peter & Paul Church a half-mile away.

Okay, not sure I understand about the smell of ether at a birth ... but here's a new idea: two photos, one when young and one when ... ripe.
