August 20, 1977

September 1976 found me in the college dorm lounge fiddling around with my new Polaroid SX-70 camera.  It was after dinner and three pretty girls came walking by and saw me with my camera.  They asked me if I'd take their picture.  Who was I to turn down these lovely ladies?  So I snapped away, took three pictures, gave them to them and they went on their way.  One of the young ladies caught my eye and with some detective work on my part, I tracked her down and asked her out on a date.  She said "Yes".

Fast forward to August 20. 1977 and see this picture:

That day, 33 years ago, I married Marti, my best friend.  We've had a wonderful life together and look forward to new fun and adventures on the road.

Oh, and we have those three Polaroid pictures, safely tucked away.  How many guys have pictures of when they first laid eyes of the love of their life?  :c)

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment.
