A Preview of “Tales from Alderman Oaks

Dolores B.     “And Saturday was bath day….”

For the German immigrants, a big galvanized tub was the bathtub of the day. Filled only once, the
last bather faced cold water with a grey film of dirt, but no one complained. Saturday night baths
were a luxury.

Gene S.     “No one could be well dressed without one!”

…And just what was Gene talking about?

Bill K.     “Hi Ho Silver!”

A five year old believes in super heroes, but no comic book hero came to Bill’s rescue when a huge
dog attacked him.

Margaret E.     “The one room school…”

One teacher, all eight grades, and lunch under the old willow tree---a slice of Americana.

Mary Jane B.     “The multi-colored doors of Dublin…”

Mary Jane explains the reason for the rainbow-hued doors on the Irish row houses and it is not what
you would expect!

Olive S.     “I belong where I am needed...”

As a member of the Foreign Service, Olive served in many countries all over the world. She tells of
her philosophy on life.

Al & Madeleine L     .“The birthday party she would never forget…”

She made her way between the carefully arranged rows of tables, celebrating her 39th birthday –
Madeleine and Al were guests at Queen Elizabeth’s party!

Ruth W.     “One person can make a difference.”

Ruth’s granddaughter, the daughter of missionary parents in Tanzania, was able to arrange food three
times a week for 500 people…one person can make a difference.
