Miss Euayla is the Sweetest Thang Issue no. 26 Summer-Fall 1961 The first day Miss Euayla came into the China Nook, my style just hit her right in the eye. I was dusting off some armadillo baskets when she came in the door and I thought, Lafond T. Cunningham, that’s your life mate. Yes, sir. I dropped those baskets and came skipping around the counter and right up to her.
