This picture brought back a lot of wonderful memories.  I first saw my wife Joan Covert in Jan 56 at Carolina Drugs.  She came into the store on a Sunday afternoon about this time with two of her friends.  I thought she was the most beautiful girl that I had ever seen.  She was 15 and I was 18.  I asked her name as she left the store and I tracked her down.  We never had a formal date before I entered the Air Force in Feb 1956 but she would get her mom to drive her to Leaksville and they would just about always get “caught” by the light at the drug store and I would always be outside leaning against the light pole that you can see in the photo.  Joan would face forward but cut her eyes so she could see me.  We married in June 58  and now have four wonderful children and 7 grandchildren.
