Still Reminiscing -
On this day, August 19th in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and seventy-six (1976) these two people started dating. They were a very young (yet mature), seventeen years old, heading into their senior year of high school. Earlier that year they had dated for a few months before "she" decided "he" was way more outgoing (extrovert) than she (introvert) was comfortable with, so she ended the "relationship".
(December, 1976)
Later that year, during a week of church camp, she came to her senses and saw this guy differently. And she really liked what she saw. I mean, come on, he was the drummer in the band -- what's not to like about that! It was this day (8/19/76) when he kissed her - in the dark - on the wooded trail to the cabins -- that she knew "he was the one". Of course it took him another 5 years to realize the same about her.
Thirty-two (32) years later:
they are living happily ever after!
Happy "anniversary" drummer boy!
