FORTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO TODAY.....
North Street Methodist Church, Goole, Yorks. UK
I think we look pretty happy here...and we were... and are!!
I can't believe I'm smiling so much and look so confident. I hated all the attention and would have been happy to just elope. My sister, as bridesmaid, would have been happy enough to sink through the ground -- she was just as shy as I, and like all bridesmaids, she hated her dress. I won't show it here as she would disown me. I had no idea. I just wanted something in a pretty autumnal color. As it was, it was a flowery orange! You just couldn't get the kind of color I wanted back then.
Nor were we excited about getting married in Goole, but my parents had moved there soon after I left home for college. But most of all we were excited about getting married, and were happy that Rev. Tom Meadley was able to conduct the wedding. He was the principal at Cliff College, a place that meant a great deal to both of us
This is where it should have happened: the Chapel at Cliff College -- and here we are just four months ago only a hundred yards or so from where we first met.
