26 years ago today
In late July 1980 for the very first time I was stood up for a date. I had made a date with this young lady over the phone. When I came to her door, she just said I just don't want to go out. For a short time I was "down in the dumps" over this. At that time I worked for Schering-Plough in Bloomfield, NJ. A few weeks later my colleague Arlene Shapiro asked me if I would like to meet her sister-in-law Karen who lived in Queens. I made a date with her for Saturday night August 30, 1980. We went to see an ice show at Nassau Coliseum. To make a very long story short we were married on October 16, 1983. It shows that one can "bounce back" from a disappointment.
