Cross Generational Connections

I learned of a connection between me and my maternal grandfather, Emery Carter. In looking through some old papers I found an invitation to a gubernatorial inauguration ball held in January of 1959. Along with the invitation was a letter from Gov. Howard Edmondson. Apparently, Grandpa Carter worked on the Edmondson campaign and was rewarded with the invitation.

In 2006 I was invited to the inaugural ball for the second term of Brad Henry. I went with one of my daughters. It was great - mostly just being with her. The ball was a giant convention room. The dinner was good and just being a part of history was nice, but mostly it was great having a date with Jenna.
