I never met him, but he was known as "Papaw Armstrong". He was my daughter's great-grandfather. Papaw had quite a sense of humour. The following is one of my favorite stories regarding his love of harmless pranks.
Connie's middle child, Don, had the good sense to marry Betty Lou Taylor. Unfortunately for Betty (now known as Momados or The Do by her "Angel Pie"), she was a country girl. And I do mean country. And Papaw played on that. One day, shortly after Don & Betty's marriage, Betty was home alone when she received a phone call from "a telephone repair man" stating that they were about to blow out the phone lines. She was instructed to, after ending their conversation, take all receivers off the hook and cover all of her furniture with sheets/blankets so that the dirt from the lines didn't cover her furniture. Well, her new husband came home at the end of the day and saw everything covered in sheets and asked what in the world she was doing. When she told him of the conversation with the "telephone repairman", it took him a long while to stop laughing in order to tell her the truth. Fifty-plus years later, Betty still gets the giggles when she tells that story!
I hope Papaw is as honoured as Taylor & I are that Eileen has sponsored his memorial. Thank you, E! (bio by: Heather)
