This happened in the spring, but it’s making the rounds now: Two kids in Tennessee named Tatum Kelly and Leighton Long recently went to prom together . . . 17 years after they were neighbors in the NICU as babies. Leighton was 12 weeks premature, and weighed 2 pound 10 ounces. Tatum came 16 weeks early, and only weighed 1 pound 7 ounces, but they both survived. Their moms stayed in touch, so they’ve been friends all these years………….And speaking of proms: Duck Brand duct tape did its annual contest again where high schoolers make their entire prom dress or tux out of duct tape. They just announced the finalists, and you can vote online through July 19. They’re all VERY impressive this year. The best dress and tux will each get a $10,000 prize……….And finally………….
A doctor in Florida named Thomas McMeekin recently reconnected with his high school sweetheart 56 YEARS after they first started dating. And I guess he didn’t want to go another day without her. Her name is Nancy Gambell. They just started talking again last month because their 60th reunion is coming up. And they decided to give it another shot. Now a video is going viral after Thomas showed up in a suit-and-tie to pick her up at the Tampa airport last Friday . . . and PROPOSED right there in the terminal. It had only been 20 days since they reconnected, but she said yes. They’re already planning the wedding. (Here’s a photo, and here’s the full video.)
