Storyline

Jan and Cindy come across a photograph of Jan that neither remembers Jan ever taking. Their mother tells them it's because it's not a photograph of Jan, but of their Aunt Jenny, taken forty years ago when she was Jan's age. Jan wants a glimpse into her future and writes to Aunt Jenny asking for a current photograph. Jan regrets doing so as Aunt Jenny forty years older is an odd looking woman, and Jan believes she will look like that when she's Aunt Jenny's age. Jan is even less excited when she hears that Aunt Jenny is coming by for a visit to meet the family, most specifically Jan. Jan can't hide her feelings about Aunt Jenny, to who Jan's feelings are obvious. Aunt Jenny learns what the problem is, but is not offended. But over the course of what ends up being Aunt Jenny's truncated stay, Jan learns that there are far more important facets to Aunt Jenny than what appears on the surface. Written by Huggo
