In the park we just left, we unhooked everything, raised the jacks, hooked up the car and pulled it to the edge of the park. We decided since the day was nice and we weren’t in any hurry, we would walk around the park one more time.
Most of the time we hold hands as we walk and talk. This park happened to have a counselor aboard for a few days and she was out in front of her RV. As we walked by she walked out, (Florida has a lot of newlywed ‘old folk), as we approached she looked down at our hands and said, ‘newlyweds huh?’ (Or something like that). Sherry answered and said, ‘Yes over 54 years ago.’
The lady acted surprised and said something like, ‘you guys look so in love’. Sherry replied, ‘We are’.
We do argue at times, one of our biggest arguments is ‘Who is going to wash dishes’, we both try to get the job. Sometimes I win. Haha!
I guess one of my secrets (if there is one) is how lucky this 17 yr old boy was to snag this ‘hot’ lady in the mid 50’s. We were going steady in 1955; maybe that is why I love the ’55 cars’.
We laugh when I joke about only seeing her ankles. Of course I knew she had Betty Grable legs just from the ankles. To see the knees I had to marry her( I thought it was worth it!).
Of course we have had our ups and downs, but it is much easier to remember the ups, and we do. This girl will let me kiss her about anytime. I felt rather ----- the other day in Walmart and grabbed her and started to lay a big one on her, when she realized where we were, drew back and said, ‘ what will everyone think?’
“They will say that old man is one lucky sucker!”
“NO!” she says. Sooooo, she draws the line in Walmart, I will remember that! HA!
Thanks for coming by the log.
PS1: Did I tell you we went fishing; we actually went boat riding since we did not get one hit. But there is always next time.
