Suds in Your Eye recounts the hilarious adventures of three of the most engaging old ladies in American fiction. Annie Freeley, widow and proprietor of Noah's Ark, a San Diego junkyard so named because "it has two of everything," is the linchpin and gardening genius of the saga. Erna Rasmussen, World War I widow, is the whiz-bang cook. Agnes Harriet Tinkham, retired spinster music teacher and thrift-store maven, brings joie de vivre and song. All three have an overwhelming fondness for good beer, good food, and good times. Pooling their meager pensions, they manage to capture a crook, save their home, and promote romance. Mary Lasswell captured the imagination of GIs and the homefront alike with this best-selling first novel, first published in 1942 and illustrated by artist George Price. (Five more adventures followed, along with a cookbook of Mrs. Rasmussen's recipes.) You won't find a funnier and more heartwarming story.
