"Oh, that's OK," Freda quickly said.
"We love each other more now than we did then," Calvin added.
During the early years of their marriage, the couple lived in Ward, a mining town near Kelleys Creek. Calvin worked in the coal mines.
They furnished the entire home for $100. Their first two of five children were born in that small house.
Now, dozens of photos of eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren line the shelves and walls inside their Hurricane home.
"Our children are the greatest. There's nothing better than when they're all here," Calvin said.
Still, among the family photos, several can be found celebrating the couple's love.
"There's one of us," Freda said, pointing to a framed black and white picture. In it, the young Freda sits on Calvin's lap.
Love over the past six decades has come easy for the Harrisons. In part, it's because they enjoy the same things -- having discovered their interests together early on.
"We genuinely enjoy being with each other," Calvin said. "I've never been off anywhere else for a week at a time -- anywhere I go, she goes and vice versa."
"He's the only man I've ever been with," Freda said. "I'm still crazy about him."
The couple often gets asked what the secret is to a happy marriage. They said they often aren't sure how to respond.
"I don't know, you have to put your trust in them and love them," Freda said.
"I didn't even expect to live this long," Calvin said. "But I always knew we'd stay together. If we hadn't been together, I'd have been dead a long time ago."
Freda's cooking skills might help. "She's the best cook in the world, anything she cooks is good," Calvin said, looking to make sure his wife heard the compliment.
