"Aunt Helen is a star"
During dinner one evening Helen to Barbara, "After dinner I am going to sing over the radio." Barbara was so excited and when she asked Grandma, "Is she really going to do that?" Grandma said, "Well if she says she is, she will." True to her word, Helen stood up and to Barbara's dismay, put her chin on top of the radio and sang her song.
