Happy "First Date" Anniversary!

Well 41 years ago today, I was getting ready to go on my first date with Irv! My best friend was dating his best friend, and they decided that Irv and I should accompany them on a date. I knew who Irv was, but I had never met him. I don't remember a lot about our first date, I just remember that I was not at home when we set it up and I called my little sister Kay and asked her to get some clothes together for me because I was going to be in a hurry.

Love the floral swimsuit. We both look like stick people...what the heck happened??

I know we drove around, because that seemed to be the thing to do back then. Then we went to Irv's house to play pool in his basement. They had an awesome house on the river. I do remember sitting on the couch while the guys were playing pool and having a pool ball get launched off the table and go zooming past my head as it hit the wall....beyond that...I don't remember a lot. No, not because it hit me in the head....it didn't.

What on earth was I wearing in this picture? I think it was a jumper and a blouse. UGH! That's my little sister Kay next to me. As you can tell, I didn't like my picture taken then...just like now!

Irv was a really nice guy back then...very polite and thoughtful, just like he is now. We continued to date, even though our friends broke up. That first week of dating was spring break, but neither of could drive, so he came down to my subdivision in his little motor boat! I lived about a block from the river.

Four years later we were married at the sweet age of 20! It will be 37 years for us this summer and that is hard to believe.

So, Happy "First Date" Anniversary Irv.....I love you!

Congratulations! My happy first date was February 24, 1984. We weren't quite 15 and 16 years old. So young. Time sure flies....our children are now almost 14 and 16...I'm starting to get scared!!

What a lovely tale! I hope it's been all jumpers and big glasses for you ever since! I can only wish the same for me and my dh! Our first date was me crying on his shoulder about being dumped by one of his friends! Pitiful maiden gets 'em every time!
