  • An appropriate thread for the day

    How did you meet your valentine? Ours was not a storybook romance, but the story is ours. She was 16, and I was 18. She was standing in front of her house, waiting for a date to arrive. This was in 1956. He never showed up because she had the day wrong. I was going past her house when I saw her standing there, so I stopped to talk to her for the first time. It wasn't long before I met her parents, and about 1 1/2 years later, we were married. She's been my valentine ever since.

    Online love...

    Ok, first off...this is dating myself, but here goes...

    PRIOR to the Internet when BBS's were prevelant, I signed up to one (The Dating Tree), 16 wonderful 9600 Baud lines of Chat!!

    The nice thing about this BBS, was once you talked, they had softball games, bowling (yeah, I know, highly romantic), beach BBQ's and such. So you could actually go meet (or not) the people you'd be carrying on conversations with.

    Suffice to say...I found the BEST of of the group, we chatted for days/weeks, met at a BBQ and the rest is history. And wouldn't you know it, to this day we're both computer geeks.

    Truely a match made, "On the Net"!

      jrolinc, dating your self? I can beat that

      I was (still am) a ham radio operator and was very involved in MARS work during the Vietnam war. Ran accross a sweet, young sounding, female voice coming out of my headphones. Took me a few months to work our a way to meet her, then really concentrated on making sure I had a good reason to talk to her as often as I could! After a couple of years we didn't need the radio to talk to each other (except when I was deployed) and its been that way for some 33 years.

      Don't really want it any other way

          My wife and I will be married for 44 years on Dec. 28, 2001. She has always urged me to
          get rid of things that I haven’t used for a length of time. Yesterday, we decided to do
          some heavy house cleaning. Not the kind where you wash walls, but the kind where you

          Here's one I received in e-mail today. My grandmother's name was Rose, so I thought I'd pass it on, for what it's worth.

          Princess goes to school
          by Ed_L
          I decided to sign Princess (our German Shephard) up for obedience classes. The first one was this morning. She is a lover to people, but she doesn't get along well with other dogs. We were the first to arrive at class, and I grabbed a seat by a desk next to the door. The trainer came in, and we talked...

          Hey Bob ... meet Princess!
          by Ed_L
          Here's the newest addition to our family. She's a German Shephard who belonged to my son and his wife. We all talked about breeding our dogs, but the deal was that we would have to keep her just before she was to give birth until the pups were weaned. We wanted a pup out of our dog because he is the...

          I felt sorry for her
          by Ed_L
          Last night, my wife, my mother-in-law, and I went to a festival in a small town where we grew up as teenagers. They had a cool parade, and things were kind of backwards, or unexpected. For instance, they had hula dancers (guys!) who wore hula skirts and the 1/2 shell cocoanut halter thingies. It was...
