  1. Comment for Alda Higdon

    Hi, Alda:
    I enjoyed your article on the roses…Thains Five & Dime, and Mr. Blounts’ Dept store…nice trip down memory lane. Alda, would you believe I was just thininking about Blount’s Dept store last week when I began to muse about the Indian Head linen fabric he sold–Home Ec class at Tattnall Industrial…Ms. Cowart sewing my clothes and Frank Ritchie ordering my rock ‘n’ roll albums–the last album–“In A Gada Da Vida!”
    Frank Ritchie’s Hardward Store had everything–including the most fun times just talking with Mr. Ritchie.

    Of course, spending time with Mark and Gay at your comfortable home with your cats and enjoying the good food you cooked up for us goes without measure. I’m sure the world would be a better more loving place when more mothers are like you, Alda. You are such a wonderful person Alda.
