    I was thinking that the memories I have are of things that I felt some level of satisfaction with them while Judy's memories almost always were of interactions with family.
    Last night I called a woman whom I had a date with this past July. I had been going through my phone book to eliminate people I hadn't contacted. When I called her she didn't recognize mr even tho I included a picture of me(no not the avatar one). so I had to give her all that I could remember of our date..she finally remebered me and said she didn't want to ever hear from me again.

    The day I reported to the ship I got assigned to after Boot Camp aka Basic Training in the Navy. Walking down the pier it was at at 32nd Street in San Diego. I had never seen Navy ships before. What a shock!

    The first time I was in a rodeo arena. Pretty cool.

    The first time I met my wife in a Denny's Restaurant. She had answered a Personal Ad I had placed. It was wonderful meeting her and, almost 23 years later, I still think about that evening.

    And, our wedding day. Again, wonderful!

    One down, many to go.
    Didn't you say you were meeting a friend of your wife's soon?
    There are lots more women than men in our age bracket, I hear.

    Was that Denny's near La Jolla. I worked with a guy named Riche and he was a Ford mechanic with little experience with Chevy so he ask me to go with him after work and adjust the valves on his friend's 454 suburban. We stopped at a Denny's before going to their house there in La Jolla and had super. It wasn't my first trip to La Jolla but mentioning Denny's reminded me of that trip. I helped him and learned him at the same time how to adjust Chevrolet valves. Pretty place, my younger brother and two sisters both were born there at old Bal Boa Naval hospital. Long gone now and the Brother ;0(

    Since my lasik surgery will be done next week, I'm waiting for her to confirm a date in November just after my birthday..I'm hoping to make it a mini-vacation if there's motels near her.

    There may be lots of women but I can't locate them, or they're tuned off by me...Sunday night at church, a woman unknown to me sat next to me and I put my arm around her when she opened to the song we were going to sing..she didn't seem to appreciatte it...even when I explained that I'd just had surgery and couldn't see very well.

    I can see how she wouldn't appreciate that; an unknown man putting his arm around her??

    When you start sniffing her hair it's time to take a look at your voter registration card. :p

    The kind of memories I have:
    One’s that I would rather get rid of but stay ever so close to the surface and one’s that I would rather remember vividly but seem to fade.
