Who is Betty MacDonald?


Until last summer I did not know. But at a reading in the academy for the elderly in Heidelberg, I met Wolfgang Hampel, the founder of the Betty-MacDonald Fanclub, who invited me to Vita Magica. I met Linde Lund, who represented the Club in Facebook. She came to my book "Im Bann der Omertà" on a very fast and inexplicable way. Linde came up with the idea that I should read the book of Betty MacDonald "The Egg and I". And what should I say? It was extremely amusing and showed the really hard American country life with a wink of humor and of its funny side without forgetting the seriousness of country life. How does she do that? To cope with the whole work alone and then also these humorous views? Wonderful, and just Betty MacDonald style! Till our days the book finds its readers, it is just timeless.
I can understand very well that the lady, who did not have a simple life, but was one of the wealthiest and most efficient business women in the United States, is so famous in many countries. And it would be a great pleasure to her, she brings many people together, both at the regular Betty MacDonlad  fan club meetings as well as in Facebook and on other occasions.

 "Das Egg und I" ("Das Ei und ich") sold already a million times in the U.S. in 1945, at a time when many people had quite different worries.  In 1947 the book was filmed, of course very successful.
In 1947 followed "Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle ", or in German" Fräulein Pudel-Dudels Wunderkuren ". The lady, who lives in a transformed house, has all sorts of wonders for children, who are just annoying their parents, because they do not want what they are supposed to do. Here, too, an amusing wink is always present. This series continued in 1949, 1954 and 1957.
But as the author is so, they cannot leave it. In 1948, "The Plague and I" (Einmal scheint die Sonne wieder), in which she has to deal with a disease as a busy and troubled mom. But physicians, medication, examinations and therapies, all adversities cannot take her the joy of life. Admirable, this attitude! Just like in her other works, "Anybody Can Do Anything" (Betty kann alles), "Nancy and Plum" (Hand in Hand der Sonne nach) and "Onions in the Stew" (Die Insel und ich), she always stands her woman and knows how to preserve her humor with all the adversities of life.
Betty MacDonald quickly became famous and became one of the most important authors, which is still being read in many countries and languages. It can make people courage and very well entertained. On 26.03.2017 Betty Mac Donald would have turned 110 years old. She died of cancer on 07.02.58.
Wolfgang Hampel was so fascinated by her work that he took the traces of the great author and interviewed the family and friends in the USA in 1996. These interviews were published in 2009 by the Betty-MacDonald Fanclub. In this way, too, the work still finds its way to readers all over the world. On the homepage of the fan club www.bettymacdonaldfanclub.blogspot.com/ interested readers will find everything worth knowing about the activities of the club, which has many members and is also very well represented in Facebook. Which author can say of himself that he has fans in almost the whole world for so many years? I think they are not too many.

People such as Wolfgang Hampel, Linde Lund and Greta Larson, make sure that this remains the same, make use of the Internet today, which of course greatly facilitates much. 


I am glad that I can support these activities!

Happy Birthday dear Betty MacDonald and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle.





Wer ist Betty MacDonald?
Bis letzten Sommer wusste ich das auch nicht. Aber bei einer Lesung in der Akademie für Ältere lernte ich Wolfgang Hampel, den Gründer des Betty-MacDonald Fanclubs, kennen, der mich zur Vita Magica einlud.

Ich war regelmäßig dabei und lernte inzwischen Linde Lund, die den Club über Facebook vertrat, kennen, die auf einem überaus schnellen und mir unerklärlichen Weg an mein Buch „Im Bann der Omertà“ bekam. Irgendwann kam Linde auf die Idee, ich solle das Buch von Betty MacDonald „Das Ei und Ich“ lesen. Und was soll ich sagen? Es war ausgesprochen amüsant und zeigte das eigentlich harte amerikanische Landleben mit augenzwinkerndem Humor und von seiner witzigen Seite, ohne den Ernst des Landlebens zu vergessen. Wie macht sie das nur? Die ganze Arbeit alleine bewältigen und dann auch noch diese humoristische Sichtweise? Wunderbar, und eben Betty MacDonald-Stil! Bis heute findet das Buch seine Leser, es ist eben zeitlos.
Ich kann durchaus verstehen, dass die Dame, die kein einfaches Leben hatte, aber zu den reichsten und tüchtigsten Geschäftsfrauen der USA gehörte, in vielen Ländern so berühmt ist. Und was ihr sicher gefallen hätte, sie bringt viele Menschen zusammen, sowohl bei den regelmäßigen Betty MacDonald fan club meetings  als auch in Facebook und bei anderen Gelegenheiten.
In den USA verkaufte sich „Das Ei und Ich“ 1945 bereits eine Million Mal, und das zu einer Zeit, in der viele Menschen ganz andere Sorgen hatten. 1947 wurde das Buch verfilmt, natürlich sehr erfolgreich. 
1947 folgte „Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle“, oder auf Deutsch „Fräulein Pudel-Dudels Wunderkuren“. Die Dame, die in einem umgedrehten Haus lebt, hat allerlei Wunderkuren für Kinder, die gerade ihre Eltern nerven, weil sie dies, das und jenes nicht wollen, was sie eigentlich sollen. Auch hier ist ein amüsantes Augenzwinkern immer dabei. Diese Reihe wurde 1949,1954 und 1957 fortgesetzt.
Aber wie das bei Autoren so ist, sie können es nicht lassen. 1948 erschien „The Plague and I“, (Einmal scheint die Sonne wieder), in der sie sich als viel beschäftigte und geplagte Mama mit einer Krankheit herumschlagen muss. Aber Ärzte, Medikamente, Untersuchungen und Therapien, alle Widrigkeiten können ihr die Lebensfreude nicht nehmen. Bewundernswert, diese Haltung! Genauso wie in ihren anderen Werken „Anybody Can Do Anything“ (Betty kann alles), „Nancy and Plum“ (Hand in Hand der Sonne nach) und „Onions in the Stew“ (Die Insel und ich) steht sie immer ihre Frau und weiß bei allen Widrigkeiten des Lebens ihren Humor zu wahren.
Rasch wurde Betty MacDonald berühmt und avancierte zu einer der bekanntesten Autorinnen, die bis heute in vielen Ländern und Sprachen gelesen wird. Sie kann Menschen Mut machen und ausgesprochen gut unterhalten. Am 26.03.2017 wäre Betty Mac Donald 110 Jahre alt geworden. Sie ist am 07.02.58 an Krebs gestorben.
Wolfgang Hampel  war von ihrem Werk derart fasziniert, dass er den Betty MacDonald fan club  gründete, sich auf die Spuren der großen Autorin machte und 1996 in den USA die Familie und Freunde interviewte. Diese Interviews wurden 2009 vom Betty MacDonald Fanclub veröffentlicht. Auch auf diesem Weg findet das Werk bis heute seinen Weg zu Lesern in der ganzen Welt.

Auf der Homepage des Betty MacDonald fan clubs www.bettymacdonaldfanclub.blogspot.com/ finden interessierte Leser alles Wissenswerte über die Aktivitäten des Clubs, der viele Mitglieder hat und auch in Facebook sehr gut vertreten ist. 

Welcher Autor kann schon von sich sagen, dass er über so viele Jahre hinweg Fans in fast der ganzen Welt hat? Ich glaube, das sind nicht allzu viele.
Menschen wie Wolfgang Hampel, Linde Lund und Greta Larson, die dafür sorgen, dass das auch so bleibt, machen sich heute das Internet zu Nutze, was natürlich Vieles wesentlich erleichtert. 

Schön, dass ich sie dabei unterstützen kann!

Happy Birthday liebe Betty MacDonald und Fräulein Pudel-Dudel! 

Betty MacDonald, Ananda Mondal and The Egg and I



Betty MacDonald fan club member - poet, artist and writer Ananda Mondal:


Some six months ago, I had no knowledge about Betty MacDonald and her works. 

But thanks to my friends Linde Lund, Greta Larson & Heiderose Teynor I know about her and her great sense of humor. I am reading The Egg And I. 

I feel that perhaps her way to narrate her life as a young wife to support her husband in a chicken farm with much struggle was brilliant in her words. 
It is just amazing to see how she used some of this incidents in life with a flawless words blend with great sense of humor. 

Honestly, I am enjoying all that. And I do not believe to read quick. I prefer to read every single thing slowly but well, so that I can understand well. And right now I am enjoying. 

I am much ordinary to say anything about Betty Macdonald and her works. But I can say that every person has a story to tell. But the way she made it is just worthful to read with a new essence of humor. Humor means when we observe everything with a different aspect of life.  It's humorous when our heart is joyful. And I believe she was a lively woman. I saw her photos and smiles... And yes I can guess that she loved life with happiness.

I am enjoying reading The Egg And I. 

There is one thing that I like about Betty Mac Donald.

She is talking about equality for women, not women empowerment.

I am fascinated how much humor a woman can express in her words.


Thanks to Miss Greta Larson. 

Happy Birthday dear Betty MacDonald!

It's beautifully written and a real treasure.


Childhood memories of Vashon Island 1943-53

Copyright by Darsie Beck
All rights reserved

I've always been fascinated by the ferry boats that serve the island and Olympic Peninsula communities of Puget Sound. I feel particularly fortunate to have spent my first ten years and the last thirty years here on Vashon Island and the in between years living in water front homes near the Fauntleroy ferry dock and on the north end of Mercer Island near the old ferry landing that once served that island community.

I have many fond memories of the ferry boats but one in particular remains as clear to me today as when it occurred many years ago.

At the time I was born, my parents lived with my grandparents in a small house on Judkins street just east of 23rd, a few blocks south of the Lake Washington floating bridge tunnels. This area, at the time, was the northern most end of what was called, "Garlic Gulch", the original Italian community in Seattle. With a new baby in the house things got pretty crowded and before long my parents moved to Vashon Island where they purchased their first home on the bluff above Dolphin Point on the north end of the island. My mother's sister Betty MacDonald, her husband Don and her two daughters Anne and Joan had moved to the island a couple years before prompting my parents to follow their lead to this island community.

In the 1940's as now, we reached the island by ferry boat. I can't tell you what that first ferry ride was like in the fall of 1943 or which boat we rode on but I do know, the boats were privately operated by Puget Sound Navigation (PSN), doing business as the Black Ball Line.
Black Ball provided service between Vashon Island, Harper (on the Olympic Peninsula) and Fauntleroy (West Seattle). During the 1940's the wooden ferries Vashon and Kehloken and the steel electric Quinault saw regular service on this run. The Quinault carried 100 cars compared to the 45 car capacity of the smaller wooden ferries and was considered a super ferry at the time. Most of the ferries flying the Black Ball burgee were former San Francisco Bay boats purchased by PSN after the completion of the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges.

In early 1948, a proposed rate increase by PSN resulted in Vashon Island suspending its service contract with Black Ball. Undeterred by Vashon's action, Black Ball continued service between Harper and Fauntleroy and to Vashon on an "as needed only" basis. With the help of sympathetic state and local government agencies Vashon began developing its own ferry service utilizing former Lake Washington and Tacoma boats out of service since the opening of the Lake Washington floating bridge and the Tacoma Narrows bridge. The Lincoln, Washington, City of Tacoma and Crosline became the backbone of the new fleet.

My first ferry boat recollection is from the summer of 1948. I was five years old, my mother was pregnant with my sister, and we were sitting in the family car on the Vashon ferry dock on a very foggy July morning waiting for the boat to Fauntleroy to take my mother to the hospital.
The fog had created a stillness over the dock broken every few minutes by the sounding of fog horns and the occasional car driving on and off the wood planked ferry dock. Soon I heard the sound of an approaching ferry, its engines reversing, its prop wash splashing noisily between the pilings, the shrill screech of the ferries wood side rails rubbing against creosote dolphins and apron wing walls as the boat nudged itself into the slip. Chains clattered as deck hands removed car barriers in preparation of off loading. I don't remember which of the old ferries landed at the Vashon dock that foggy morning but I do remember, once our car was loaded onto the boat, sitting on the car deck, looking out the port into the fog when suddenly out of the mist a large ferry appeared. Its propellers furiously reversing, deck hands and passengers on both boats bracing for an impending collision. My eyes grew big and my body grew tense as the huge ferry cleared the fog revealing her black hull, white superstructure and the black ball painted near the top of her red stack. It was the Quinault, Puget Sound's first super ferry heading directly for our boat. The prop wash of the huge ferry was buffeting the side of our boat, causing it to rock back and forth in its slip. The Quinault was now within a car's length of our boat when its forward motion finally came to rest and her reversing action began to move the boat out of harms way. As stealthy as she had appeared, she now disappeared back into the fog sending a collective and audible sigh of relief through passengers and crew of both boats.

The Quinault, now considered a medium sized boat compared to today's super ferries, still ply's the waters of Puget Sound and still holds a place in my childhood memories as the most enormous boat ever seen by a five year old.
