THE GOLDEN HONEYMOON

While I was playing checkers, Mother would set and lister to the band, as she loves music, classical or no matter what kind, but anyway she was setting there one day and between selections the woman next to her opened up a conversation. She was a woman about Mother's own age, seventy or seventy-one, and finally she asked Mother's name and Mother told her her name and where she was from and Mother asked her the same question, and who do you think the woman was?
Well, sir, it was the wife of Frank M. Hartsell, the man who was engaged to Mother till I stepped in and cut him out, fiftytwo years ago !
Yes, sir !
You can imagine Mother's surprise ! And Mrs. Hartsell was surprised, too, when Mother told her she had once been friends with her husband, though Mother didn't say how close friends they had been, or that Mother and I was the cause of Hartsell going out West. But that's what we was. Hartsell left his town a month after the engagement was broke off and ain't never been back since. He had went out to Michigan and become a veterinary, and that is where he had settled down, in Hillsdale, Michigan, and finally married his wife.
Well, Mother screwed up her courage to ask if Frank was still living and Mrs. Hartsell took her over to where they was pitching horse-shoes and there was old Frank, waiting his turn. And he knowed Mother as soon as he seen her, though it was over fifty years. He said he knowed her by her eyes.
" Why, it's Lucy Frost! " he says, and he throwed down his shoes and quit the game.
Then they come over and hunted me up and I will confess I wouldn't of knowed him. Him and I is the same age to the month, but he seems to show it more, some way. He is balder for one thing. And his beard is all white, where mine has still got a streak of brown in it. The very first thing I said to him, I said:
" Well, Frank, that beard of yours makes me feel like I was back north. It looks like a regular blizzard."
" Well," he said, " I guess yourn would be just as white if you had it dry cleaned."
But Mother wouldn't stand that.
" Is that so! " she said to Frank. " Well, Charley ain't had no tobacco in his mouth for over ten years! "
And I ain't !
Well, I excused myself from the checker game and it was pretty
