1946

My parents were married on April 20, 1946.  There are no wedding photos.  This photo is on a postcard taken at the Pike in Long Beach.  After he was discharged from the US Navy, Dad was given a bus ticket to Oklahoma City.  He visited family for a while, but finally decided to call Mom in Southern California and asked her to marry him.  She said "yes" so Dad borrowed a car from Uncle Artie Lee Castor and drove to California on Route 66 to get married.
