"What a nice day for a walk in the park"
My parents (AKA Meme and Grampa Carlie) met 45 years ago today!! My father was 17, just about to graduate from high school and was driving around with his buddies. My mother was 14 and walking with some friends. Dad saw Mom walking and told his friend to pull over because he wanted to meet that girl. His first words to her were, "What a nice day for a walk in the park." In the beginning my grandmother (Mugga) said, "You can't go out with him, he shaves!" , but eventually they did get to go out (my father had to park his car in front of the house, and they walked to the movies for two years because my mother wan't old enough to "go in cars.") They are as much in love today as ever and are an inspiration to us all. Their lovestory is our whole family's story and this morning when I asked both Jonathan and Madi separately what happened 45 years ago today, they both quickly figured out what it was and even knew the line (except Madi said "stroll").
Do you know the lovestories in your family?
