My girlfriend and I went to Eddie’s Hot Dog Stand for a treat before we went to the dance hall. I ordered a hot dog with onions, and the good looking “guy” next me said ‘Phew!’ I said, ‘I don’t care, Eddie’s sandwiches are the best there is!” and I glared back. Later I saw him at the dance hall. He asked me to dance several times. I found out his name was Arthur A. Knight of Rome. Just as I was about to go home, he asked me if he could buy me a sandwich at Eddie’s—onions and all! Of course, I said yes. That’s the way it all started, and continued for the next few years until June 25, 1941, when we were married.
