Buttons on Cards, with marriage in mind Part 2

Do you have a clear impression of the 10 ladies on the button cards?–
(see last post—Part 1 of this series . . .)

Now, we’ll present the available men on the button cards.  But—!
as my neighbor, Millie, used to say–but! yikes! there are TEN
women to match up and only NINE men!  Now what!

Some lovely lady (or not) will become an old maid.  Not the end of
the world—but not OUR goal in this game!

The men, from one to nine:  (click to enlarge photos–although
on some computers photos might be lifesize!!  –photos are

1.  Dad
2.  Mr. Suit
3.  nice guy with flyaway tie

5.  Mr. Suave
6.  Mr. Suave’s twin!
7.  Mr. Perfect
8.  sly
9.  delivery boy

#1 Dad--this guy seems to be married already from the button booklet.  I assume he's the "Dad" and not the "brother".  Looks a lot like Ronald Reagan

#2 Mr. Suit  Hm, he seems to know what he's looking for in life.  Does he have a slight mobster look? Dapper.

Dapper.

#3 Nice guy with flyaway tie.  Not bad.  Pipe smoker---will need a girl who just "loves a man with a pipe".  what's that black think out in the water?  hey--is that eye shadow?  still, cute

#4 bachelor---this silly fellow doesn't need a wife because he can just snap these buttons on.  But, of our crew of ladies, maybe we can find him a girl to sew on REAL buttons

#4. bachelor—this silly fellow doesn’t need a wife because he can just snap these buttons on. But, of our crew of ladies, maybe we can find him a girl to sew on REAL buttons.  He looks a little like L’il Abner.  Remember him? now we need Daisy Mae.   Is that nail polish?

#5 Mr. Suave--whoo-woo, now we're getting into big time.  He's a catch for someone--probably a golf club there?  that's to show he has class . . .

# 7. Mr. Perfect? well, perhaps not PERfect, but–likes sailing, lives near the city—the theatre,  the ‘dahnce’ — cute bow tie

#8. sly--does not have your best interest in mind

#9 delivery boy--I think he's carrying a parcel, and I think he has a cute dog at bottom of photo, too. Delivery boy, but might be 18 or 19?

Get pencil and paper again.  Study this group of eligible bachelors (most
of them) and then go back to the ladies in the Part 1 of the post.  Match
them up,  and let us know your answers!!!!     Have fun.   How many
June weddings will you be able to come up with?

(If you are hesitant about “commenting”,  just send an email to booksandbooks
at comcast.net.  I’ll still report your matches . . .)

    Okay, here goes:
    Looking for Fun and Sly–but they won’t stay together.
    Ethereal and Mr. Suit, as they are both rather focused on appearances.
    Tired Mother and Dad because they have each been widowed and left with one child. They will join forces and help each other heal. Unfortunately, things will get very complicated because the step siblings will fall in love and everybody will get very confused.
    Sniff and Mr. Perfect come from the same set, so they know each other’s backgrounds and share the habit of rolling their “r”s.
    Orange Coat and Nice Guy because she will overlook the eye shadow.
    Pretty Ladies and Mr. Suaves, obvs.
    Bonnie and the Batchelor make each other laugh. She keeps him grounded, and he’s very handy.
    Cinderella gets the delivery boy because she needs someone to carry all of her packages. And there is no way that he is 18. Nice try.
    As for the Blue Anchor lady, she stands alone, as she is a nun of the little known Azul Anchorite order, who pray for the souls of mermaids.

      Wow! ambitious work! it will be interesting to see
      how things look five years from now. I have a few different
      pairings—but I like the way you defended your matches!
      Stay tuned for hundreds of other responses. Yeah, right.

    Haha! Can’t possibly beat Buttondeb’s matches! Though if I were one of the ladies, I’d cheerfully be the old maid, I think…

    • booksandbuttons says:

      ah–a very modern outlook! Who wants to iron all those
      white shirts?? thanks for checking in–

    I also love buttondeb’s choices, but I think Bonnie is the one to end up solo. She’ll head off to the Highlands to wander the hills — she looks pretty self-sufficient, after all.

    Though Blue Anchor isn’t really the type who’d be looking for the Bachelor type. He needs someone young and impressionable, from a small town, who’ll be bowled over by his magic tricks, little jokes, etc. But luckily he’ll find someone pretty easily, as he’s a salesman (of buttons of course) who visits many such little towns and villages and will run up against a soulmate on a snaps card.

    The Blue Anchor doesn’t marry — she founds a girls’ boarding school and serves as its headmistress for decades.

    • booksandbuttons says:

      ah–new country heard from! Ha-ha! so you think Bonnie
      will be the free unencumbered spirit—wandering the
      Highlands—interesting choice.
      And blue anchor heading a girls’ school—I can see that.
      She looks tall and strict.
      But best, ‘bachelor’ will find a small town girl on a
      snaps card————love it!! will choose one to include
      when I post my own matchups. Thanks for your input.
