DeanCarl Posted June 16, 2004 Share Posted June 16, 2004 20 years ago I was a "returning" student (after 9 1/2 years in the Navy) to college (San Diego City College). I'd met this really cute girl in the biology class, also a "returning" student. After finding out she was a psychology major, as I was, and that she seemed to enjoy the same kind of things I did I asked her out on a date. On June 16th, 1984 we went to the San Diego Zoo in the afternoon then to the Spagettii (sp?) Factory for diner. We stoped off at her place afterwards and .. well .. I kinda never went home! In the 20 years since that time Gay and I can count on the fingers of one hand the days we've been apart. There is NO way I can express how I feel today looking back on all the things Gay and I have been through and just how lucky I am to have such a wonderful person in my life. She has taught me so much in these years together. After my dx we weren't even sure I'd be around to celebrate this day. But I am and we are headed out this evening for some prime rib and to just "be" with each other one more wonderful day. Dean Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
