I wrote this blog entry for our kids...
May 22 is Grandma and Grandpa Gorman’s wedding anniversary! Doesn’t she look pretty and doesn’t he look handsome? Their first names are Tom and Mary Lee.
They were married on this day in 1976. The night before they were married, they were up late, running from store to store in the rain, trying to find Grandpa a pair of white pants that would fit him. He was such a muscular weightlifter at the time that the pants that came with his tuxedo would not fit his thighs!
Grandma and Grandpa met at a roller-skating rink. On that first night that they met, Grandma didn’t give Grandpa her phone number. Instead, she simply said, “Meet me here next week.” Unfortunately, a big snow storm prevented both of them from going to the roller-skating rink the next weekend. Oh no! But, on the following weekend, they ran into each other again! Whew! This time, when Grandpa asked for her phone number, she simply said, “Look in the phone book. I’m the only Pilley from Philly.” Thankfully, Grandpa found her phone number in the phone book, gave her a call, and the rest is history!
In the wedding photo above, there is actually a man walking on the grass, far behind them. The photographer waited until the man was directly behind them so that he could take a picture without the man being noticeable. But we know he’s there. So funny!
