WELCOME TO MY WORLD: THREE DAYS AT THE RALSTON ARENA IN OMAHA AND 3 DAYS AT THE ODEUM IN CHICAGO.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “HUMANS ARE BORN TO LOVE AND BE LOVED”—We have had a wonderful two weeks selling the “Rose Donlin” books, first at the Ralston, Arena in Omaha, Neb. and then the Odeum in Chicago. People were most wonderful to try a new book written by an unknown author. The Luban girls, Morrison and Gennings Grace came Sat. and Sunday to help me. We all love little children, so they handed out brochures for me. They met a great singer from Omaha and danced on stage while she sang. And a great big Thank You to husband COLIN for all the help he gives me. It doesn’t get any better than that.—”Rose Donlin–The Next Generation”—CHAPTER 27–Myra slowly crawled down and threw her reins around a broken post. She reached her hand out to the door latch and suddenly the door opened and the most handsome man she had ever seen stood looking at what he thought was a young boy. “What do you want boy? the young man said in a deep rich voice. Myra’s hand went up and grabbed her old worn out hat and ripped it off of her head. Her long thick dark hair came falling down over her shoulders to the middle of her back. His mouth dropped open.” http://www.collmannwarehouse

The man was gone.——FROM THE NEW BOOK–”ROSE DONLIN–THE NEXT GENERATION”—CHAPTER 33–Myra arrived at the sheriff’s office and asked “If he had any news on Margaret’s disappearance.
