Wifflesnook Posted October 31, 2013 Report Share Posted October 31, 2013 I wanted to start a topic which would be life affirming and positive and I thought how good it would be if we shared how we met our loved ones. I hope some of you may join in. We have got to know quite a bit about each other and by definition meeting our beloved partners was such a wonderful thing I thought it worth sharing. So here goes (briefly!) As most of you know I am in England, in Yorkshire to be precise. And Pete was a Yorkshire man but 'in exile' as he liked to put it in the Midlands, working as a librarian from 1958, at Birmingham university. In 1960 I joined the library as a very junior library assistant and was assigned to work for Pete. I was 19 and very much into rock and roll and jive and all that. I regarded Pete as something of a square. However I got to really like him, and engineered working on the same late night, and getting on the same bus! He started to notice me too, and we began going out together in January 1962, got engaged at Easter and married in July 1962. He was the love of my life, my soul mate, best friend, and meeting him changed my life, me, and I think him too. Later we moved back to Yorkshire where I am still of course.
