You can make your own version with any dried fruit, such as blueberries, cranberries or apricots. You also can add chopped nuts or chocolate chips. (Matthew Mead / Associated Press)

They courted at the fair –a first date between neighborly teens in 1941. Now,  Earl and Eva Shadle will once again return to the Puyallup Fair as they have over the seven decades of their married life.

The lovers, who once walked to school together, will scoot and wheel around the Puyallup Fair, remembering the years of scones, music, quilt shows, concerts and married love that carried them to this extraordinary anniversary – 70 years of marriage.
