Anne was an engineer originally from Winnipeg and more recently from Calgary who was currently working in Paris though she was planning to retire soon and return to Alberta. Following a thought inspired by the World War I song, How Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm After They’ve Seen Gay Paree, Laetitia wrote the limerick that follows for Anne:
Will a Winnipeg Lassie named Anne
Who now lives where they do the can-can
Miss the Alberta boonies
Where they buy things with loonies
And go back home according to plan?
