Of course, this was before the completion of I-65 but Charles didn’t seem to mind as he cruised around town in his metallic blue ‘66 Cutlass that had a black vinyl top. Most of their dates were in the Crestwood/Eastwood area where they would go to Shoney’s or to the Starlight Drive-In.
After graduation in ‘69 they both went to Jeff State. Later Charles headed off to a year of basic training for the Army Reserve which is when Carol became despondent, quitting school and her job because she missed Charles so much.
Charles, age 20, and Carol, age 19, married on December 21, 1970. A friend of Charles had them over and designed Carol’s wedding ring.
