Question of the Day
- How did you meet your spouse? How long did you know each other before you were married? Can you describe your wedding?
Every now and then I receive an e-mail question or quiz that is being circulated among friends. Recently the above question arrived in my e-mail box. It makes one think back and remember a specific time.
A friend who has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s [Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)] disease is sharing some of her junior high and high school memories. I am thoroughly enjoying her reminisces.
We all have stories and I feel it is important to leave some sort of story regarding our lives for our children and grandchildren. Why? Because I know that I have wanted to know about my parents and grandparents and ancestors. I’m also interested in my friends’ stories; we have so much to share and often our stories are shared experiences – the times we were with one another. These are good memories.
I welcome friends’ answers to the above question in this posting. Tell!
- I met my husband at a little hamburger ‘joint’ in Farmington, New Mexico. He came to the Four Corners Area when this area experienced a huge oil and gas ‘boom.’ This was a very busy time in this part of the country and it was a teenage practice to ‘cruise’ Main Street – going from one end of town (The Chicken Shack) to the other end of town (The Chicken Hut). A carload of guys parked by our car filled with teenage girls and we all struck up a conversation – and one thing led to another.
- We were married almost three years later.
- We eloped! All the way to Aztec, New Mexico – to the Presbyterian Church. A couple in the congregation were our witnesses.
