Marriage of Al & Marilyn by Earl Ball
Earl 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 talkeda bubbly, beautiful lady walked up to usand 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.
