41 Years Ago Today!

Herb and I got married, in Wichita Falls, Texas. We were supposed to get married on August 17, but due to a shortage of funds, I flew standby and got bumped off my plane, so ended up, we got married on August 18, in the home of our landlady. I was just 18, had never flown before, and here I was, flying to another state, where the only person I knew would be Herb, scary to think of that now, but we were determined. Herb had bought a car, and it blew up on the way to the airport, so he had to get a ride, was not a problem, since I would be a day late. Oh, were we crazy or what? We didn't have two nickels to rub together, but we got along just fine. Hard for me to believe we have been married that long.
We just got home from Ohio last night, was there on a buying trip, course got to see my Mom, my sisters and my brother, my other brother was on vacation at Myrtle Beach, so never got to see him. We still don't have the trailer unloaded, worked on it a little today, still have highway
lag, so not moving so quick, will hit it hard tomorrow and hopefully will have some pics to share with you tomorrow night.
Till Tomorrow!
