Mabel loved a man in a uniform, so when she asked for a photo of her favorite, he of course replied, but it might have taken him a while. Our World War One Doughboy had already turned his khakis into a scarecrow, thus protecting his sunflowers instead of his countrymen, and as far as I am concerned putting them to darn good work. I am glad he survived the carnage.
