1. My Wonderful Visits with Rose
I first walked into Rose's store in 1974. It was closed but she was watering the geraniams hanging in the window and the door was open. I thought it was an antique store. I startled her and she ask "What do you want, Mister?" I introduced myself and that started a love afair with Rose and my family. I bought many items out of the store, and she always said I have to keep one for the museum. We called her from Nevada City before coming in as we always brought her something from the bakery there. Around the 3rd or 4th visit we were invited into the house and she had a pint of ice cream in the freezer for my daughters who were 6 & 7 at the time. We loved her dearly and every time we left she would say "When are you coming back, Mister?" She grew to love us as we loved her. Nick Farago 2011
