    My Mother and Dad, during the War about 1944 in New Orleans, LA, invited and entertained LT Taylor for dinner at their home one evening. My Dad was an Army LT, going to the office daily and frequently in the mornings telling the secretaries about the delicious meal prepared last night for him by his wife. LT Taylor’s secretary overheard, told LT Taylor, who then asked “Will LT Cox invite me for dinner?”. He did, Mom prepared and served the meal to her husband, their 2-year-old daughter and Hollywood star Robert Taylor. He regaled the couple with Hollywood stories and thought Mom’s meal was terrific. Mom saved Taylor’s salad bowl, never used it again. I have today, in November 2019, 75 years on! Bob Cox, Phoenix, AZ.
