She and Roy had dated a few times.
He had a brother...and she had a friend. They thought it only reasonable to arrange a double date.
A picnic, a country drive in the old Chevy, Cokes, burgers, maybe a movie at the cinema or a drive in movie, any of those could have been the scenario for this blind date. I picture grandma and her girlfriend getting ready. Curls, high heels, and lots of laughs.
