Drum Drummond said it was true. War was definitely Hell. But as far as he was concerned, two heavenly angels had shown up in that hell in the form of pin-up girls named Rita Hayworth and Betty Grable. And so, when his granddaughter was born, and everyone else was surprised the baby wasn’t a boy, he suggested they name her Grable. It was either that or one of the boys’ names they had been planning on. Grable’s mom, Celia, was still coming to grips with the facts. One: she had a baby. Two: the baby’s daddy was absent. So the name didn’t seem all that important. Not when compared against those two things.
