Now, you never knew who her “tourist” might be. They could be family friends in town for a quick visit. Or, one of her dear friends that she promised her special tour. Anytime the local Rotary Club had guests, they always scheduled a day with “Miss” Margaret. And, she loved it. She was proud of her town and adored being with people. But the most memorable guests she brought by one afternoon were a group of Russian judges.
Now there were several things interesting about this group. First, she failed to give us any advanced warning and secondly, none of them spoke English. They did have a translator, but he was out of his league trying to keep up with “Miss” Margaret, even with her Southern drawl. So in they came. “Miss” Margaret waived to me and then started her comments about the portrait. At this point, I was unaware of the language challenge.
