Miss Adela Strangeworth makes her way to the grocery store. Passing by her rose garden she tells tourists about her grandfather and how he built the first house on Pleasant Street. Miss Strangeworth never gave away any of her roses, although the tourists often asked her.
My grandfather built the first house on Pleasant street.
Can I get a flower?
Walking down Main Street on a summer morning, Miss Strangeworth had to stop every minute or so to say good morning to someone or to ask about someone's health.
Good morning! How are you doing? How is your health?
I am doing fine. Thanks.
When Miss Strsngeworth came into the grocery store. half a dozen people turned away from the shelves to wave at her or call out good morning.
Good Morning Miss Strangeworth!
Martha's hand shakes slightly as she opens her pocketbook. Miss Strangeworth wonders is she had been taking proper care of herself.
I wonder if she had been taking proper care of herself. Martha was not as young as she used to be. She probably could use a good, strong tonic...
When Miss Strangeworth arrives home she sits down in her lovely sitting room. She wrote judging letters to people anonymously. Her letters all dealt with the more negotiable stuff of suspicion.
Didn't you every see an idiot child before? Some people just shouldn't have children, should they?
Don Crane found out that the letter was from her and sent a letter back that said, "Look out what used to be your roses".
