On the Way home from Work.

With a Wedding Anniversary approaching (Sunday), it seemed appropriate to look at some old pictures from about that time. This one was taken in the fall before our June wedding. I thought Elaine had that “Loren Bacall” look which was pretty enticing. This was just a few weeks before she accepted an engagement ring for Christmas. My '41 Chevy is the car. She worked at the Seward County Extension Office and shared a room here in town with another young lady. I worked for the USDA Soil Conservation Service and lived at home out in the country. We both got off work at 5:00pm so I often gave her a ride home. Occasionally, the route home wasn't most direct but included a little side trip which was the case in the instance of the picture. Until her folks gave their approval to our becoming engaged, they were very protective of her and attempted to limit our time together. They might have known that “Love will find a Way”.
