Buck and Peggy Gooch's love has been splashed across the newspaper, but he says it's just a common country story.
Last year Peggy wrote a poem to Buck for a Love Lines ad in the Valentine's edition of The Advocate-Messenger as a surprise for her hubby, who enjoys proclaiming his love to her on the local cable access channel. They enjoyed it, and then didn't think much more about it.
When the newspaper advertising staff put together the ad for this year's Love Lines page, they grabbed the Buck-n-Peggy poem and have used it as an example.
Buck said more people have noticed it as an ad than they did when it was first in the newspaper. Over and over, Peggy's poem about standing "face to face" with Buck on their wedding day has appeared in the Advocate.
