March the 31st. Another month gone - one month nearer to our destination, dear heart. Each month as it passes by seems a milestone. A milestone - one of the many before we shall reach in our marriage dear - That at presents seems the ultimate destination - but what about the happy days after it.
This is the journal of Virginia Lee Scott, my grandmother, written when she was seventeen and first dating my grandfather, John Arnold Wilson. It's a dairy published by Media Drug Stores and includes space for two entries per day, with facts about the era printed at the bottom, which I have included in italics. Following, 1928, is the journal of John Arnold Wilson, my grandfather, at age nineteen and in love with my grandmother, followed by my grandmother's journal in 1931.
