Every good story has a beginning and this one began in 1954, on this very day, fifty six years ago. My mom and dad were married on a military base in Germany.
After their ceremony they took a ride on a tank! They lived in Germany for almost a year and returned to New York by crossing the North Atlantic on a ship. Ask them someday to tell you about that adventure.
Here's the telegram Mom sent once she arrived in Europe. My granny once told me that she almost chocked to death as she watched her plane leave Nashville!
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad.
