Dort and Ben, Christmas 1960
Dort and Ben, Christmas 1960

Benny Lee Taylor and Dorothy Jean Taylor were married Nov. 7, 1958, at Unity Baptist Church in Little Rock, Ark.

Yes, Taylor was my mom’s maiden name. No relation, so save all those jokes some of you are thinking up right now (you know who you are).

But in the spirit of levity, I’m using this photo from Christmas 1960 because I couldn’t find the wedding picture that I thought I had. I’ll post that pic later. These big events sometimes sneak up on me.

Yes, I realize that Dad has been gone for nearly 11 years, but these things are worth marking, don’t you think? Even 39 years is a huge deal nowadays for a couple. Besides that, you wouldn’t be reading this blog if not for that event so long ago.

Hooray for Ben and Dort! And, Mom, have a day filled with wonderful memories.
