Welcome aboard to my newest “Follower” Rebecca Carroll. I THANK YOU very much for joining my group and taking your time to read about our RV lifestyle.
Here comes the bride and groom….back on June 28, 1969:
Yeah, that’s Bruce and me on our wedding day…..oh so many years ago. We are celebrating 41 years of marriage today. I was a child bride, of course!
This is me around the age of 7.
This is Bruce around the age of 3.
I had turned 18 on May 30th, graduated from Lakewood High School on June 18th, and got married on the 28th. I kept my parents fairly busy that year.
I first met Bruce when I was only 12 years old. His sister, Pam, and I were school friends. When Pam and I were 13 we became best friends and spent a lot of time together. I was considered a real pest by Bruce at that time and he didn’t give me the time of day. One thing led to another and when I was 14 and he was 18 there began a mutual attraction.
Much to our parents dismay, we began going ‘steady’ as we called it back in the dark ages. That was the summer of 1965. That was an awesome year. An awesome time, truthfully. If any reader was a teen in 1965 they will know what I mean. Great music played on our transistor radios. American Bandstand was a hit on TV and the Beatles had already conquered America. Bruce bought us tickets to see the Beatles in concert at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles…..my hero!
Making a long (but interesting) story short, I got engaged at 16 and we began planning the wedding. In 1969 I was 18 and Bruce was 22 and we got “hitched”. We’ve been together ever since. Like 2 peas in a pod, or as Forrest Gump said, “we go together like peas and carrots”.
It has been a wonderful life and we have enjoyed some great experiences, and some difficult challenges. It’s all part of the journey.
Until the next time……so long for now!
