He begged my mother for a week to ask me to go out with him and I finally said okay and when he got there I refused to go and he was just going to sit at the house and watch t.v. and I told him no I had changed my mine.  We were together 7 months before we married and that was between him milking cows that morning and that evening and it was on Valentine's Day so he could remember our anniversary and it has been for 18 years now through good times and bad times.  To my loving husband Douglas thanks for being there.
