My parents met in high school when my dad's family moved out to the country from a city and they went to the same very small school -- only one class per grade -- they dated exclusively immediately and never looked back.
That is a loooong time to be together....I couldn't make it. I took care of a man at work last weekend and he said "There's my girl over there"
She was sleeping in the chair/bed and I thought he meant his daughter. He said "We have been married for 44 years." I said she was
beautiful when she was sleeping and he said you should see her when she is awake! Awwww! How beautiful is that?
