A Blind Date Success Story

Back in the early 60's a pretty young woman and a handsome young man were set up on a blind date. The night of the date, the pretty young woman had a large cold sore on her lip, and she wasn't sure it was going to go so well. You know how blind dates are. They never work out.

But this one did. And they fell in love.

On July 3, 1965, they married. And the rest, as they say, is history.

That was 43 years ago. They've seen, done, and been through so much over those years, a list that could go on and on. But through it all they've been together, for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. I, for one, am grateful to whoever set up that blind date!

The blind date was with another couple: Ben Allen (best man at our wedding) Sue Frazell (sp?). They didn't stay together much longer than that date. They even had a fight that night.
