For the AtoZ challenge, I’ve selected past heroines who have captured our hearts or maybe scared the tarnation out of us. Either way, come have a seat On The Porch Swing and share your thoughts!
After the death of her father when only five, Annie Oakley took to trapping small animals to help feed her large family. At seven, she picked up a muzzleloader. The adversities she overcame continued throughout her childhood.
Then, at the age of fifteen, she whooped Frank Butler in a shooting competition by hitting all 25 birds when he missed one. Frank lost more than the match though. He handed over his heart. Annie, however, fell for Frank’s French poodle, George.
In order to capture the girl’s attention, Frank sent Annie letters signed by his four-legged pal. As we all know, it worked. A short time later, although the exact date is debatable, they married.
Do you have a unique or unusual method to courting? Was it successful?
