Default 48 years ago today

On this date in 1967 a good friend and I went swimming in my parents pool for a couple of hours. It was in upstate NY and was not heated. OH, and by the way, he was my Best Man that evening, Friday the 13th, of Oct. 1967, Joan became my wife, and I'd do it all over again, the marriage not the swim in an unheated pool. Today, to celebrate our anniversary we are going to get a new freezer, our 5 yr old one quit for the second time. It is an upright, we are going back to a chest freezer.
