The oldest of the Marcus children was a girl. She was very tall and very thin. She had enormous amounts of mahogany hair. She was very very proud of her hair. She devoted a great deal of attention and she wore a lot of jewelry. She had long arms and long legs. She wore so many bracelets and watches that she had to walk as slowly as an old man. She loved the delicate filigree of gold or silver woven in distinctive styles. She loved the flash of precious stones set in rings or earrings or chokers or bracelets or pendants or brooches or amulets. She had expensive taste but given the fact that Airball and Saint Marcus had almost no money, her collection was very limited. Her name was Neiman and she was usually called Nee-Nee.
