Romance Part 1


She was teaching junior high English and Geography when at the instigation of several female colleagues she visited the Superintendent of Schools to make spring requisitions.  “We need some eligible & handsome young male teachers to fill next years vacancies,” she suggested.  When she appeared in my classroom that fall to “borrow an overhead projector”, little did I know I’d been “requisitioned.”  Well two out of three, being young and male, proved to be adequate and we hit it off quite well.  She liked the great outdoors as these pictures demonstrate and I was smitten….. or was it doomed?  It was 1965.

Your wife was smart to "requisition" you! She looks lovely in the great outdoors, and her appreciation for earth's blessings made a great match for you.

Oh, I love that goofy grin on your face. And I love this story. Another great match. Definitely not doomed.

What charming photos. Nice way to meet -- both teachers. Commonality leads to great friendships and sometimes marriage in your case!
