RE:TB:Debby Rairdon

According to the 1969 Check List, no parentage is listed for Debby 
Rairdon.  In all other literature I have read on DR, it was a bee 
pod, and, therefore, is unknown.  If the two pinks theory is valid, 
what were those pinks?  If Mrs. Kuntz didn't record that information, 
then unknown is still valid, I think.

et. al., I wish I knew what the other parent was.  These all came 
from the same bee pod.  In many instances, the bees do a much better 
job than the hybridizers!  This may be true with DEBBY RAIRDON.  Oh, 
all those planned crosses and theories down the drain!
