Nostalgia

Yesterday, the first day of September, we had glorious blue skies here in the UK and it felt like the middle of summer instead of the beginning of autumn. DH and I made a nostalgic trip. We returned to the park (or arboretum as it is grandly called) where we met fifty five years ago. It was a chance meeting of two boys and two girls. Fate I guess. Our friendship lasted, my friend’s didn’t. And I say friendship because that’s what we are – good friends, loving friends. Always have been always will be. We’re total opposites but that’s part of the fun.

I took a few photographs. Not of the spot where we met, though I suppose I should have done. But this is one of the nicest.

    Not sure where I “met” my husband, as he was in the “CBers” club, as were my parents, and I was probably in high school when I spoke with him. I had a boyfriend after college, but we broke up in Aug/80, and I “met” my soon-to-be husband in front of the local post office on the Friday of Labour Day weekend (do you hear the Twilight Zone music? do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do!) right afterward, 31 years ago (sort of) to the day. My DH offered me a ride back to my parents’ place, where I was visiting, and he came in and visited with my mom. He invited me to the movies that night (no idea what we saw), and I invited him back to my nearby apartment (gasp). We sat on the floor (as I didn’t have a lot of furniture, but we had our backs to the couch) and played Cribbage while watching Saturday Night Live. He then drove me back to my mom’s, where I stayed overnight. The following day the CBers club drove “north” to watch the “changing leaves”, so my DH accompanied me and my parents in their motor home, where I fell asleep at the kitchen table and slid onto the floor. Yet he still married me. Go figure.

    Good story, Laney4. I especially love the bit where you fell asleep at the kitchen table and slid to the floor. Very romantic!!!!
