About the Half Date
bucker Jump to the story

What were dates to the prom like before the days of limousines or cars of any kind? How did girls ever get to the dance with those full skirts on? How did they keep warm?

This story, as far as I know is true. It was written by one of my mother's cousins, and for anyone who has never been there, the Snake River Valley in South-Central Idaho is indeed a fearsome place in the winter.

This was included in a booklet entitled "Hutchison Histories" compiled by Jean Hutchison Hendricks (my aunt) and Donna Hutchison Anderson (my mother).
