Princess J, a friend from church and I went to the Alabama Archives and History to hear Kathryn Tucker Windham speak. She just celebrated her 90th birthday a couple of weeks ago. She was a great storyteller/speaker. Very comfortable in front of an audience. The auditorium was packed, but our friend, Martha, miraculously found us a seat on the second row. Thanks, Martha!
One of her stories was about a man whose wife ran away with a traveling sales man. He put up wanted posters offering $100 for the return of his wife. The posters included a photograph, her age, weight and color of her eyes and hair. A couple of weeks later she came home fuming because the posters said she weighed 20 lbs. more than she actually did. She made him pay her the $100 reward money.
Her book is probably great fun.
Sounds like a very special lady…would have liked to go with you!
I think I would come home to collect, too. That’s just mean.
I liked the story, too.
