I really do have a good excuse for not subbing for DFO as he takes his 134th vacation of the year. I'm writing a book: "Love Stories From the Greatest Generation." The book is a collection of love stories about couples who met/married during or shortly after World War II. It will feature approximately 30 stories like this one.
Due to the ages of my subjects it's been a challege to find couples where BOTH partners are still living and able to share their stories.
Perhaps my fellow Hucksters can help. If you know of any couples who fit the above description, please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming :-)
