I was listening to the FourCast Podcast episode 42. One of the forecasts was that we would have Enhanced Reality devices that showed you how your location looked like in say the 1940’s. Tom asked if you could go back and see anything in history, what would you want to go see? It struck me I would love to go back and witness my grandparents eloping.

My Paternal grandparents eloped by driving out to Richmond, Texas, near where I work, and getting married by the Fort Bend County Justice of the Peace. Then they went home and lived with their parents for several weeks before fessing up.

My Maternal grandparents eloped due to religious reasons. My grandmother was Scottish Protestant. My grandfather was Irish Catholic. That was a bid deal in early 1930’s Prince Edward Island, Canada. By the time the grandchidlren came much was forgiven.
