Throwback Thursday: Grandparents’ Wedding

A little personal history for this Throwback Thursday. The wedding of my grandparents Faye Yandle and Frank Furr, on June 13, 1954, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Fun facts. Despite his civilian attire, my grandfather was at the time a member of the U.S. Navy. My grandmother gave up a full music scholarship to UNC Chapel Hill to marry him.

… and the nails, loose boards, glass shards and the other debris littering the ground. This blog is, after all, still very much under construction. Hopefully all the infrastructure will be in place by the end of this weekend; then the real blogging will begin.

Until then, Bookish Miss recommends checking out an audio excerpt of Kate Mayfield’s memoir The Undertaker’s Women. There’s even home video included!
