Much to Helen's surprise, when the comedian began to search the audience for a victim, he pointed di- rectly at her and asked her to come forward. "I had to go down on stage and was so worried I'd either fall climb- ing down from where we were seated or trip climbing up the steps to the stage." she added. The comedian continued with his show, crowning Helen Queen for the Day and draping a dark royal purple satin robe across her shoulders. She didn't exactly get a wish but she was given a dozen roses (fashioned into a broach), a crown of jewels (also a broach), a quilted apron, a 5x5 inch gold leather coin purse, and a sheet of discount coupons from local retail shops in Branson. "It was all in fun. I didn't have time to use most of my coupons. Our bus was leaving shortly after the show. But I did make them wait while I cashed in. one of my coupons on some fudge at The Fudgery. I just can't pass up a good piece of fudge," Helen laughed. Once they were back on the bus, Leonard and Helen found the entire ordeal served as a great icebreaker with the rest of the group. "They called me the queen for the rest of the day!, Helen concluded. "It was a lot of fun!" Leonard and Helen farmed in the Cadamscommunity while raising their daughters, Linda, Sharon, Phyllis and Diane. They have retired from fanning and live a rural life just outside of Superior.
