The word prompt for the 20th edition of the Smile for the Camera Carnival is Valentine! Here’s a photo of a couple who were each other’s valentines for a long time – my grandparents. When the photo was taken, they had been married for 23 years. James Pointkouski first saw Margaret Bergmeister working at a stored owned by her brother. He was friends with the brother, and immediately asked him who she was. Like a typical brother, he replied, “Her? Oh, she’s just my sister” as if that meant she was nothing special. But she was special to “Jimmy” and he immediately pursued her and eventually married her. Her brother didn’t mind!
