Kulautuva, Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic, January 1, 1971. This is my Mom's maternal Aunt, Dora, and her husband.Dora had been a great beauty, and she dressed fashionably. As Dora aged, she continued to underscore appearances and remained alert to flattering clothing.

I find it charming that an older Dora "touched up" some photos she sent to my Mom. In this snapshot, for example, Dora penciled in longer eyelashes. In another, she darkened her eyebrows.

Dora must be a common name over there.

I worked with a Russian lady named Dora.
