Great Grandma Goes To Prom

by country ranch writer

A young man by the name of Austin Dennison of Rockford, Ohio, decided his date for the prom was going to be someone special. He had planned this, although he was only nineteen. His great grandmother meant everything to him. She could never go to the prom in those past years in her life. Times were very tough in those days. So he came up with the idea and went to the school and hatched his plan with the administration to surprise her.

When he asked her to the prom, Delores was beside herself! "Wouldn't you like to take your best gal to the prom?"

He said, "You are my best girl and I am proud to have you on my arm when we enter the prom."

She even went shopping for that special dress like all girls get to wear. Delores called it an adventure. Times have changed over the years and she just kind of shook her head and said these just won't do. A bit of a culture shock compared to the nineteen thirty styles.

Finally she found what she was looking for, a blue dress for her age and style and a nice clutch purse to hold her medicine. He gave her a beautiful white corsage for her wrist. Before heading over to the prom, he took her out for a lovely dinner and then onto her gala.

They took a short cut across the room as she was not able to walk the whole length of the gym. She was the belle of the ball Oh! She was so beautiful! She had the time of her life. She is such a delight to be eighty nine years old. It was her night to shine. It was for her a wonderful dream come true.

Austin had his great grandma home by nine pm. A little after her bedtime, it was a night neither would ever forget.
