What You’re Doing Today Already Recorded In Oils
Toledo Blade - Sept 2, 1951

“Do you know that somebody has already made a picture of you having fun this weekend?

The artist went on vacation first, and museum walls are covered with his paintings of people doing just what you are doing this 3-day Labor Day holiday.

Going on picnics, wandering through the county fair grounds, resting in the mountain or at the shore, playing golf or baseball, hiking, hunting, swimming, boating.”

Dorothy Rice met Waldo in Spain where she was studying art. The war came and Waldo stayed in Europe to drive ambulances. Dorothy went home, resolved to get into the war. She would fly! 
On August 1916, Dorothy trained on a Wright biplane, passed her tests and qualified for license # 561 at Mineola, New York, 
She became the tenth American woman to obtain her air-pilot license. She also was the first woman to ride a motorcycle. Dorothy was a painter, sculptress, writer, and one of the country’s best known bridge players. 
What a Lady!
