joe & i met on a blind date in chicago one sultry summer evening (july 16, 1997 to be exact)... my pal pauline had wanted to know how we met... well it was on a blind date... no, not like that skanky tv show by the same name... a mutual friend (& fate) brought us together... i was nervous as heck! joe was (& still is) so hunky & TALL & i wondered what he was doing with the likes of me! he was so friendly & gentlemanly, telling me not to be "shy" & that he found me "cute"... he was so incredibly charming & since that first dinner out, we had become inseparable! joe does not recall the actual date we met, but that's okay...that's what he has me for (lol) to help him remember! except for some gray hair & fine lines, don't we basically look the same? i'd like to think so. this snap was taken by one of my sisters at a friend's wedding...this happens to be our favorite picture of us. Posted by Picasa
