Happy Valentines Day
In the late summer of 1969 I was getting ready for my freshman year of college at Oklahoma Christian. A few weeks before I left for school I had a couple of dates with Steve Haupt. He was a really nice guy with Christian values and he asked for my address before I left. He wrote me often and even called a few times - which was a big deal back then. We didn't even have phones in our dorm rooms - there was one phone for the whole hall and whoever happened to pick it up would yell your name down the hall - so everyone knew when you had a phone call. When Valentines Day rolled around I got a really big surprise - a card, candy, and flowers - all from Steve.
Little did I know that 36 years later I'd still be getting cards & flowers from him. (I told him to skip the candy for obvious reasons). My roses are gorgeous and non-fattening!
Hope everyone has a great Happy Valentines Day !
