The U.P. is such a wonderful place to grow up and fall in love. Today's photos reveal both, as Ted Sullivan of Laurium and Joan Pearce of Eagle River posed three years in a row for their Calumet High School Prom. First, notice in their Sophomore year, Ted starts out side-by-side with his lovely date, perhaps a bit nervous. Then in '62 they move just a little closer in their Junior picture. By the time they are graduating Seniors in '63, Ted wears a confident smile and even has an arm around his future bride. Four years after graduation they were married at Sacred Heart Church in Calumet.

As a matter of fact, that happened 40 years ago today - June 3, 1967. Happy Anniversay Ted and Joan!

The credit (or the blame) for this week's Shoebox Memory goes to Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan's daughter Marissa, who discovered these at the Eagle River home of Lillian Pearce, our neighbor who passed away in 2004. Marissa told us that her folks moved to Waukegan, IL after they were married, where they made a home, raised two children, and adopted many dogs over the years.

Ted and Joan, hope you're not too surprised for having such a thoughtful (and sneaky) daughter, and congratulations again on your special day.

Have a good week :o)

Happy Annivesary Folks! Wonderful to see the transformation in the pics from one Prom date to the next. Speaking of the weather, I went thru the TS like a trooper. Lots and lots of rain and thank God not much wind. Total for my area in Tampa was 9". Happy Sunday to all.

Happy Anniversary, Joan & Ted! And thanks for sharing these sweet photos!

You settled in Waukegan, Illinois - what a small world! That is the same place my grandparents (along with my mother, who was then a baby) settled after they left Hancock in the early 1930s. They lived in a 2-flat on Grove Avenue between Jackson St. & North Avenue, a block from St. Anastasia parish, where they were members. My wife & I were both born & raised in Waukegan.

Look at that awesome necklace in the second picture! It looks like crystal. It's positively beautiful! I love the vintage jewelry. I just bought a couple of vintage crystal necklaces at a garage sale.

Ted and Joan. Seems like yesterday doesn't it? It does for me. Congratulations from a member of the Class of '63!
