Earl Ball Speaks: I’m sitting here waiting for Hurricane Irma so I thought I would try to write a couple of stories.
While I was in Hendersonville I got to talking to a good friend, Al Buffum. Seems he’s 90 years old now and as we talked, a bubbly beautiful lady walked up to us and to my surprise he introduced her as his wife, Marilyn.
He told me the story of how they came together but what I remember is that he proposed and suggested June for a wedding date; she refused but said she would marry him in April. Why! Well as the story goes she didn’t want to marry a 90 year old man, seems Al’s birthday is in May.
Stan Speaks: I failed to date this article by Earl; accordingly not sure the date of the Marriage. Perhaps someone will tell me. You may ALSO wish to read this article by Earl: https://theshuffler.net/2014/01/08/it-takes-a-good-deal-to-amaze-earl-ball-but-al-buffum-did-just-that/ Posted 2018 03 22.
