Dear Miss Schneider, Please Excuse Walter...
takes you on a journey using a variety of notes
written during the great depression years of 1937 ~ 1940
as stepping stones.
It was during those years in Newport, Kentucky, that
third grade teacher Miss Schneider began collecting the written excuses the mothers of her students sent in explaining why their children were absent from school. These humble, heartfelt and sometimes humorous notes have been cloistered in a scrapbook for more than seventy-five years.
Enjoy as well, the history of Miss Schneider's life as pages of photographs and memorabilia guide you through the years.
It was a lifetime ago.
Their story has been waiting to be told
Magnolia Blossom, aka Maggie, is a full figured feline who is proud of her golden fur awesomeness.
She was rescued from a barn in New Jersey, but now lives in Florida.
However, she has a constant struggle understanding the behavior of her parent figures.
She has no patience for the feline mongrels who also live in her house she calls Chez Magnolia.
The book contains her numerous letters to her friends, detailing her life.
You will enjoy her photos, laugh at her antics, sympathize with her struggles,
and fall in love with her quirky personality.
Guaranteed to make you smile!
