What's sad is Bonnie told us she showed her mother the collection book. Her mother paged through it, but had no stories. Did not remember painting them. Bonnie asked, "Mom, well, what do you think of the art work?" Her mother picked up the book and paged back through it. She smiled and said, "I think it's pretty darn good. " Rather bittersweet.
As I said, all quite cool. Better late than never for us to see local talent and learn some history.
I salute Olive Pemberton.
