The Leaves Of October

Happy October 21!

Today M and I celebrate the day we met, Thursday, October 21, 1976.
M, thanks for calling a scary stranger--me! That October was cold and snowy and all the leaves were long gone. I remember wearing a winter jacket and boots on that first date, October 23.

Of course, for those of you who remember that I just turned 39 again, I was a mere child when I went on that blind date 36 years ago.

    M's helicopter?! He wishes... No, they're mostly from our terrace. The last one's from the car. :-)

  4. Beautiful photos, Barb. Phil and I met on October 19. It's a romantic time of year! How perspicacious of you to know what you were looking for in a relationship at only three years old.

    1. Thanks, Susan!

      I really did have a sense of humour when I was a kid. When I was 5, my father told me to "Eat the brown stuff first." I knew very well that he meant the roast beef, but I reached for a piece of chocolate cake instead. That was the last time my parents patronized me.

      Heh, I grew up fast. ;-)
