    I married my high school sweetheart. I wish every man had a wife as good as she has been to me. :thumbsup:

    My wife reminded me of an interesting fact about our honeymoon trip and I think I ought to share it. Ah youth...

    Here's how carefree we were then. We left the church heading to Chattanooga for our honeymoon. We were in a Volkswagen beetle that you had to push off to start! We had to be very careful where we parked. I remember we went to Ruby Falls and they directed me to the lower parking area. When I got down there I told the attendant I had to park on the hill somewhere. It never failed to start once you gave it a shove.

    That's how different the world was in 1974. We both came from a home with loving parents but, looking back, how in the world did our parents let us do that? There is no way I'd let either one of my children leave going on any trip in a vehicle like that.

    awww...how sweet! If every man still thought of his wife as his high school sweetheart after 37 years...there'd be more wives good to their hubbies.

    I heard someone call this months full moon the Strawberry Moon. Because the strawberries come ripe here in NY, I guess.

    Which month does the Honey Moon fall in? Or rise in, as the case may be.

    Today was the 12 year anniversary of meeting my husband for the very first time, so we spent a romantic day together doing lots of different things and having fun. I'm very lucky too. :p
