This week I was going through my time capsule box and I ran across this old photo of Grammy and Papaw. I have always loved the story of their romance.
Papaw had been serving in the Navy. He was home on leave and the soldiers were all taken to the local high school. One of Papaw's mates was in the hallway and saw my Grammy. He caught her and scooped her up, took her into the room where all the soldiers were and sat her down in Papaw's lap. He said, "Look what I found! Here, you can have this one!" Papaw asked her out.
Grammy's father was very strict. He didn't want her to have a serious boyfriend so he would not allow her to see a boy more than three times. He felt that more than three dates was too serious. They carefully spread their three dates out. On their third "date", Grammy's brother Ralph, who was a minister, performed their wedding. Her other brother, Jim,waited outside with a shotgun to keep their father away. They were married for almost three months by the time of their graduation.
