BEGINNINGS and next Chapters
30 YEARS AGO TODAY was our "unofficial" first date. I think we have different ideas of which was our "real" first date. I was working at a new restaurant in town and he was the designer. I had been laid up for a couple of weeks after having minor surgery on two of my toes, so my dear friend Liz and I planned on going to the movies. When Ron called to find out what was going on in Ventura I asked him if he wanted to come along with us. It might have been one of those awkward moments but I don't remember. We met at the theater and saw the Cotton Club, it was a great movie! After words he offered to buy us a drink. Since he was from Santa Barbara he let us choose. We picked to the Alamo, and said just one drink!. I was dressed in a short jean skirt and pink slippers, I couldn't wear shoes yet because of the surgery. When we think back about that night, we laugh about those slippers! They weren't cute slippers, they were like booties, pink, with flowers, and they had soft souls. I thought I looked cute! with my short skirt and a matching pink shirt. He watched us dance on the dance floor, two crazy girls who just wanna have fun! To think I was on a dance floor, with a bunch of drunks, with soft shoes and stitches in my toes? It never crossed my mind, we just laughed and had a great time. There are many of you starting at the beginning and some are starting your next chapter I would love to hear your stories. Fairy Tales always come with Happy Endings!
