And along came Ruth, like an innocent flower on the verge of blossoming. She was so flawlessly beautiful and kind and therefore took Buddy’s heart for a ride. Buddy was dangerously close to stealing Ruth’s heart in a kiss when her summer hat blew right off her head and wandered down the trail. Buddy being the gentleman that he was, went after it and in doing so, found his foot stuck in a railroad track just as a train was coming. That was the end of Buddy, but not in Idgie’s heart.
