Happy "30" Wedding Anniversary
Dedicated to My Husband David

Submitted by Linda

We lived in a little town called West Alton, Missouri. When I was 9 one of my brother's friends, he called him Squeak, would pull my pigtails. He was handsome so I didn't care that he teased me. I was 9 and he was 16. Then a few years went by and I was 16. I rode my bicycle to get some things at the store one Saturday morning. After I arrived, there was Squeak watching me get off my bike. He greeted me a friendly "hello" and he said "I know who you are" and asked me "Do you remember me." I did not recognize him at first, he had been in the Army and I had not seen him for several years. He asked me out on a date; I was on Cloud 9 until I had to ask my parents. It took me two weeks to talk them into allowing me to go out with him. He was 23 and I was 16. My Mom was very religious and strict with me. Finally we were granted permission to date. He was wild, I felt like a giddy young kid who just got out of a locked closet when I was with him. The first night we dated I asked him "Do you have another name besides Squeak. I found out it was "David", I never called him Squeak after that. He had an old 56 Chevy; he would pull the steering wheel off the column, give it to me and say; "Now you drive for a while". He also would act like he was getting out of the care while he was driving. "He'd say you better grab the steering wheel cause "I'm getting out." I was scared at first until I realized he was teasing. He kept a cloth in the glove box and handed it to me if I sat to far away.

"One day we went to Illinois to pick up a package." As we were walking back to the car there was a Jewelry store on the same side of the street. He said, "Pick out a ring;" my heart was in my throat. He bought the engagement ring that day and then I had to show Mom and Dad. I didn't know who was going to have the heart attack first. It took them a while to get used to the idea. We were engaged for two years and married when I was 18 and he was 25. He had a nice little wedding at the Courthouse. That was April 4, 1970.

Two children, their spouses and one grandchild later, we are planning our 30th Anniversary this year. Our plans "Hawaii or Bust". We will remember our Vacation the Rest of Our Lives; and look forward sharing our experiences with our family and friends.

With All My Love to My Kind and Sweet Husband!!!!
