Back in 1979 the WMC Radio Station, in Memphis, had a “Woman of the Day” award. My daughter, Kathy, wrote a letter to the station telling them why her mother deserved to be “Woman of the Day.” They selected her letter and I was selected as “Woman of the Day.” My name was called several times throughout the day. The next week I received a certificate and an invitation for two to attend dinner at the Holiday Inn Restaurant near the airport
My husband and I enjoyed a steak dinner with all the trimmings. While we were eating we also got some unexpected entertainment. A young man came running through the restaurant streaking. Excitement really picked up. Then someone yelled, “Don’t look Ethel.” The police were called and the man was taken away.
I still have my framed certificate to remind me of how proud I am of my daughter. It also reminds me of that unexpected streaker.
