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.




  1. Happy Anniversary!

    Photo's from M's helicopter?

  2. Thanks, Kevin!

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

  3. I knew mentioning the H word would well.... I knew! :-)

  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. ;-)


Give a hoot.
