Lunch and Conversation at the Dinner Table
Featuring Special Guests: Tom and Betty Chesnutt
He is 97; she is a young 93. They have been husband and wife for 73 years. He is a WWII veteran who saw combat. She became a published author with her first book at age 85. Their lives together have been marked by adversity, faith, resilience, joy, family, and love. I caught up with Tom and Betty at their home in Hope Hull, Alabama. Before I arrived, Tom drove himself to pick up fresh pizza for our lunch. (Who needs delivery?) I brought some homemade Bon Bons and Fat Cake from Liger’s Bakery out of Montgomery, Alabama for dessert. The meal was scrumptious. The conversation? Absolutely delightful. We ate all the bon bons, but we did save you a seat.
