I met Sam in a cinema.. I was an usherette.. I flashed my torch at him and just like a moth he was attracted to the light.
So you were his 'luminary' from then on Scrumpy? Your description painted a wonderful picture.

I was working at The American Express with loads of yanks etc, but one day a special one in the USAF came in & when our eyes met, I knew it was love.

At a dance, my Mum was with me. Ron asked me to dance and at the end asked if he could take me home. I asked my Mum if he could (we actually did this in those far of days) and she said, Yes, but she would come too, needless to say he didn't walk me home that night. But made a date to meet me later. We have now been together well over 60 years.

Back in March 1949 I was in the parish church choir and I noticed at Sunday evensong a new girl sitting at the rear of the pews.  I made her acquaintance and we have been wed now 61 years!  When she has passed her probationary period whereby she will be fully qualified to cook for me and carry me about, I might just keep her on lol!  (Don't let her read this!).
