Getting Engaged in 1937

While researching some tattoo history in old newspapers I randomly came across this announcement in the Montana Butte Standard from September 21st, 1937, announcing the marriage of a Miss Shannon Larratt. I’m always surprised to meet other Shannon Larratts — this is number three that I know of, after myself and a woman about my age (maybe a little younger) currently living in South Africa. Other than that not much to report. Been slogging away at helping out on ModBlog and BME, writing a bit more on Facebook, working on interviews and my book projects, and going to doctors appointments. All of those things are good, except the last, which has been terrible, more terrible than usual probably.

    Random findings are kind of special, but not as amusing as when Mr. Bates became Scout Master Bates, I don’t know if that was considered newsworthy at the time.

    I have been enjoying your Mod Blog posts. Have started looking at BME again. Something I haven’t really done since you left.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
