22 years ago yesterday.....

My hot rockin hubby and I went on our first date. ahhhhhhh...... I can't even find any photos. We were heading to the cast party after the final performance of "Plaster Saints" at Bethany Bridal....er...Bible College in Scotts Valley, CA. The party was taking place at the home of the college president, as well as one of his daughter's who was also in the play, Jenny Foth.

So, it was our first date. We had not officially even been on this date more than 30 minutes. When Don came around the car (a white, 1967 Mustang, thank you very much!) to open my door (oh...my white knight!), I looked him in the eye and demanded, "Are you going to kiss me or not?" YES! I demanded that first kiss! And he obliged, albeit a bit nervously. So our first kiss took place on our college president's front lawn. Thank you President Foth! A minute or so later, when we went into the house together, several people grabbed me to "warn" me about Don. You see, he wore rock and roll t-shirts and played electric guitar, and had already graduated from Bethany. So some how he had developed a reputation as being "Wild" and "Bad". He does not remember doing anything wild so he feels a bit cheated. But we feel it is particularly funny that they were warning me about him, and I demanded the first kiss.

That was 22 years ago. And he still plays guitar and wears rock and roll t-shirts and I still demand kisses.

I love you my hot rockin man!

Haha! I went to Portland Bridal College but I couldn't get my honey to kiss me until we had been engaged for 6 months (not for lack of effort on my part)!! Happy anniversary!
