This is one of those blocks that seems deceptively simple. It's not. But if you concentrate on my nice sharp points, it doesn't look bad.
This week is the 76th anniversary of my Aunt Alice's wedding to Edward Yarnal. I posted a few pictures of Aunt Alice as a baby and young child back in December, but l thought it would be fun to see her as an adult.
Alice and Ed met in High School and graduated in 1931 - Alice would have been only 16 at that time - Ed was two years older. But the country was in the Great Depression, so Alice went on to more school at the teacher's college in DeKalb.
On the back of this next photo, in my mother's handwriting I read "Honeymoon" but I think this photo was taken on their wedding day.

And finally, two years before Ed died in November, 1983.
A local newspaper reporter wrote an article about Alice in 1999. In the interview, Alice described Ed as a calm man. The reporter wrote more of Alice's story of her marriage to Ed, "When something was over, it was over. [Alice] remembers seeing him angry only about five times in their 46-year marriage, and it was always at inanimate objects. This came in handy, like the time Alice was discing a field and distracted by a bread wrapper on the ground, ran right into the brand new fence."
Both of them had great senses of humor.
