Back when Kristin Russell’s mom got remarried, her new stepdad Dave gave up his dream car — a 1973 Porsche 914 — to pay for the wedding.

John and Claudia of Rochester, New York attended Paul McCartney’s concert on Saturday with two signs. Hers said, “He won’t marry me ’til he meets you.” And his read, “I have the ring and I’m 64.”
