40 Something Years Later

Pat and I met and started dating about 43 years ago.  At that time he was working at the Ranch Drive-In in Bothell, Washington.  I was working at the library at our high school.  So since yesterday was our 41st wedding anniversary we had dinner at the Ranch.  We then drove around Bothell to see if there were any new changes, some things have changed but some not much.  

We took some pictures of ourselves, one normal and the one below trying to look sillier than usual. 

Below is a picture of our yummy dinner.  I added a cherry shake and Pat had a "Boston cooler".  They don't offer them on the menu anymore but Pat shared with the young lady at the counter how to make one and she gave it a try.  I guess she did a pretty good job of it.

Just to let you know, we don't eat out like this too often at our advanced ages but it was fun and yummy and it was all about nostalgia, of course.


  1. Congratulations! Love to hear about love term love affairs.

  2. You both are just too cute! Happy anniversary! Nice to see where a love story begins!
