Hi Jerry,

I finally got to the youtube you sent. So your parents met at a stop light? Wow! Did your Mom say "I love you"
through the window too? That was cute but stranger things have happened. My sister met her first boyfriend
in the produce department over the cantelopes! That is hard to top!

Did they meet at a general get together of teachers? I know there was a teacher's cafeteria when we were in
elementary school. Was it love at first site or did they have common ground? Sorry to be so nosey Victoria, you really
don't have to answer all my silly questions.

Hi Eileen,

The video was just an example of cruising, in response to your comment that you didn't know what it was. No personal story intended.

There was a lot of clubbing going on in the 50's and 60's. When we were in our 20's, we would go to the John Boyle O'Reily Club. As you may guess, it was an Irish Club and meant for people of all ages. It was great fun, live bands, alot of dancing and mingling with relatives you
might not see except at weddings or funerals. We got to learn some about our family tree, the music, and of course alot of stories.
We loved it.

My Mom grew up on a farm in Indiana. When she was about 20 she bought a one-way ticket to Austin, Tx. She didn't know anyone there so she got a room at the YWCA. My dad grew up in Chicago. He enlisted in the AirForce at 19, and after 2 years in Japan was stationed at Bergstrom AFB in Austin, TX. They met at a YWCA dance and married 3 months later. They were married almost 55 years. My dad passed away 2 years ago today. Please pray for my mom.

My dad was given my mom's number by a mutual friend. If I remember correct, it took 6 months for him to call her. Their first date was at the Dixie Electric Co., a night club that was in Toledo, OH at the time.
