Joan Kelly - U.S.S. Missouri And A Teenager's Crush

Back in 1953, my aunt was "crowned" Miss Welcome To Long Beach. (My mother was a regatta queen, but I will deal with that plus photos in another post!)

I received a rather interesting e-mail from an individual who was about 15 at the time, with an audio stream of a story this individual told about his youth, the U.S.S. Missouri, and my aunt. I turned it into a video.

I know that's funny! The indignation in his voice when he says "she married Sid Bulkin." Ha ha! Although I know it's mock indignation, but still. I should edit the post later, with a link to Sid's blog.
