On this day in 1979..31 years ago..Doug and I had our first date..Where did we go?
We went to a restaurant in New Westminster called the ‘King Neptune’..I have searched and searched on the internet to find an old photo of this restaurant that is not here anymore..but I had no luck..on the site where the ‘King Neptune’ was is now the New Westminster Quay…in the past years we have spent many an afternoon strolling along the boardwalk..pushing Carlie in her stroller..lots of memories at this spot..…thinking of that first date and how far we have come…
Our first date was dinner with Doug’s family..his Dad, his Dad’s girlfriend, Moni..Ron and Karen..and Karen’s mom and dad..Bob and Doris..quite the entourage for a first date ..but Doug’s dad was buying and who is gonna pass up on a free meal..raw oysters and all!!!
When I think back to that day 31 years ago..I wonder where the time has gone??..the only ones that are still alive are Moni, and Ron and Karen, of course..who would have thought that an evening spent with all of them that we would still be together….but 31 years later…here we are!!!..better and better is all it can be!!
Here’s to 31 more!!!..cheers!!.love ya!!!!!
