Cat Story and Wart Charming

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Constance Olsen (daughter of Gerald F. Olsen and Constance Stagg) was visiting her great-grandfather at her Uncle Joseph Addison Thompson's home in Midvale and her cousin Marvin Jr. (Bud) Olsen was also there and he grabbed the tail of a cat and the cat meowed very loudly and Willard James Gladwin Woodhead opened the door and yelled out "OO in the ell made that owl?" They all laughed because he dropped his "H's" since he was from England. Another time she was visiting her great grandfather she had a wart on her finger and he took a penny and rubbed it on her wart and "charmed" it. He told her to throw the penny away so she did and the wart went away. The next year some friends wanted to go buy some penny candy and so she looked and found the penny out in the yard so she could go get some candy and the wart came back!

Willard J. Woodhead was 62 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
