A classic submitted by a mom who thinks it’s adorable.

A big sister who hated the dress said, “If the wind caught your collar, you could be like the Flying Nun.”

History note: The Flying Nun was a popular TV show in the late 1960s where a young nun in full habit, Sally Field, would fly if the wind caught her head piece/cornette. It was a very madcap and popular show.

PS: We were very Catholic; my mom liked the Flying Nun, and it was regular TV viewing in the Steffes household.

PSS: Although very Catholic my mom also LOVED Archie Bunker and All in the Family. However, we were NEVER allowed to watch that show and often found ourselves with an early bedtime when it came on the black and white.
