Couple Celebrates 80 Years Of Marriage

It was a happy anniversary, indeed.  One hundred-year old Melvin Scott and his 99-year old wife, Minnie Lou of Frankston, celebrated their 80th wedding anniversary, Sunday, with generations of relatives by their sides.  KLTV asked Minnie what being married to Melvin has been like all these years.  Her response:  "No comment," she said, laughing.

The Scotts say they were asked to tie the knot on stage at a traveling vaudeville show, and since they were planning to wed anyway, they accepted the bid and were paid $25 to do it.  The Scotts say they bought a bedroom group with that $25 and a set of china which they still eat off of today.
