Ben's grandmother visited from Arkansas. Lovely lady. Great visit. Ben's grandfather passed away this past January, just two days after they celebrated their 68th anniversary.
One day while enjoying some leave, he and a friend noticed a church near the base and committed to attending. One Sunday morning they made it out, and arrived in their dress uniform shortly after the service started. Grandma Isabel was in the choir, and noticed the visitors. She had just been elected the president of the young adult's fellowship committee, and as such was expected to greet all new visitors of young adult age. However, John also noticed Isabel, and to her dismay, began to communicate his interest from the pew. He stared at her and every time she looked his way, he began to bounce his eyebrows at her. Coloring, she turned away, refusing to look at him. As the choir made their way to their seats, a fellow committee member urged Isabel to greet the young cadets, much to her chagrin. After the postlude, she dutifully introduced herself to John and the other cadet, and invited them to return for the evening service. Of course, John returned and asked to walk Isabel home from church. (swoon!) She accepted, and on the walk home, invited him to attend a young adult activity on the following Tuesday night.
