Flirting...


At our friends wedding...on a warm summer day in August in 1975.
Who doesn't feel a bit romantic and flirty at a wedding?

We don't remember who took the pictures.
We were not "technically" even a couple yet.

The bride would later become one of my bridesmaids.
The groom played the piano for our worship song.
(My upper arms would later not look that toned any more, ahem...)

Bernie was 21...and looked far more innocent than he really was.
He was a golden blond surfer who was working in construction during the day and getting his degree in Theology at night.
That didn't leave much time for courtship or even dating.
Plus I was only home from college for three months during the summer.
Long distance phone calls were expensive but worth it!
(I recall him telling me that he would spend at least that much on dating me if I was in town.)
 
That clefted lower lip was something I fervently hoped our children would have.
And they did!
And so does our grandchild!
Flirting...it is a good thing!

It's fun to look at photos from the good ole' days, back when when our upper arms were very toned without even trying! You two make a cute couple.

I love this Jill. You and Bernie were so very cute together. I love your hair there....and your toned arms.
Oh that cleft lip...so happy that it is being passed along.

Cute couple then, and now! Flirting can be so much fun. Do you flirt still?

PS - I don't think my arms were ever that toned :)

I loved these photos when we spotted them on FB - they're great! I love the little bit of history, too.

Odd...remember when we discussed how Doc and Bernie chatted like long-lost friends and even thought they could pass for brothers? I've got a photo from way back when that would back that up! Now I need to remember which box it's in...and get it scanned...
