Over the MoOM

Coudal's Museum of Online Museums

I’m pleased to announce that on May 27, 2007, the Tiny Pineapple Nurse Book Collection was inducted into Coudal Partners’ Museum of Online Museums (MoOM).

(Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the induction ceremonies because Steve Perry borrowed my power blue, velvet-lapelled tuxedo in 1981 and still hasn’t returned it.)

The tpNBC can be found in the Museum’s Galleries, Exhibitions and Shows wing, just 43 spots below The Smithsonian. But those Washingtonian dandies better watch their government-subsidized backsides because I’ve posted Nos. 275 and 276 since then, and I’m knocking them out of the Top 20 if it’s the last thing I do!

Pineapple Field Near Honolulu, T.H.

Raising pineapples in Hawaii is second only to the sugar industry. Pineapples do not grow on trees nor in cans! Stranger still, they are planted in paper!

City Nurse, Country Love

Karen Shannon, R.N., was dismayed to hear her sister Rosemary had been hurt in an accident. When the young nurse took a leave of absence from her much-loved city hospital and returned to her small hometown, she was prepared to do everything she could to help Rosemary. But Karen was not prepared to lock horns with Rosemary’s doctor, attractive, arrogant Adam James.

Adam had often teased and embarrassed Karen when she was younger, and now he was even more difficult. For he was warm and charming one moment, making her fall in love with him. But just as she was ready to give up her newfound city life for him, he taunted her with hatred.

Nurse at Playland Park

Nurse at Playland Park

Karin Douglas was leaving Houston Research Clinic forever. A man whom she had dated a few times, Ben Jarome, had committed suicide. The note he left gave the impression that Karin had led him on, then thrown him over. People were willing to accept the distortion rather than ferret out the truth. Ben’s father was influential in the city of Houston. The suicide headlines had blazed across every paper in the city. Her picture along with Ben’s appeared in the tabloids. Karin had to make a new life for herself. But, she thought, was she making a mistake? Was running away always foolish?

As she pulled up to the rooming house in Richardson, a small suburb of Dallas, doubts continued to assail her. And at Mrs. Grummy’s rooming house her composure was at once put to the test. Books filled her room, the result of a vanity press swindle of her new landlady.

Karin’s first day of work was not much more auspicious. Almost immediately she was met with rudeness and impatience by her work partner, Jessica. Unwittingly Karin had made an enemy, one whose ingenuity might threaten her new job at Playland Park General First Aid–and her future. Karin had promised herself after the Houston scandal to concentrate on her job and future, that men–all men–were off limits. Including Mac Franklin, an amiable young worker-pianist at Playland Park, and Dr. Lance Pickford, a sophisticated ladies’ man. How to hold on to her job and at the same time hold off two men test Karin Douglas’ mettle to the extreme.
