Summary Sarah Ophelia Colley, takes on her well-known alter ego Minnie Pearl to write a quaint diary in her inimitable Southern Country style. "Dear Folks: Up to now, you've only heard what she could tell on the air. But at last she's been persuaded to give us her secret diary -- writ by hand. We asked her for some information "to put on the outside of the book" and this is what she sent us: BIRTHPLACE: Grinder's Switch, 3 miles west of Centerville (not even a wagon greasin'). Population 300 folks; 350 dogs. DATE OF BIRTH: Age is a relative matter and that's her trouble -- too many relatives -- she's in her early fifties -- young enough to wink at the fellers; too old to have them wink back. FAMILY: Minnie has a brother, a sister, Uncle Nabob, Aunt Ambrosy, Coz Elmer, etc., etc., etc. SCHOOLING: Minnie Pearl went all the way through Grinder's Switch Elementary School -- several times. CHILDHOOD ACTIVITIES: She enjoyed carefree life at Grinder's Switch, early interest in fellers, kissing games, coon hunts, possum hunts, kissing games, swimming in Duck River, watching the train go through, kissing games. LATER ACTIVITIES: She participates -- invited or not -- in all activities at Grinder's Switch with heavy emphasis on efforts to snare a husband. She is the social leader of Grinder's Switch, showing keen interest in ice cream socials, church socials, and any other parties where they play games, especially kissing games. B(u )y now!".
