[family] Mom and Dad and dates  
Fifty years ago today, right around this time, Dad proposed to Mom. He called her, because he'd just gone into the army, and was about to be sent to Korea (even though he didn't know it right this second then), and proposed. Fifty years ago tomorrow, he spent his one night at Fort Leonard Wood, despite the fact that he tried to get stationed in the Midwest for the entire time he was in the army.

November 1, 2005 will be their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

And my Dad says he sees me as a superhero. Whatever confidence I have comes from him.

Is wrong of me to say that that's the most romantic, real life story I've ever heard? Sounds like something you make a movie out of.

No, it's not wrong. It really is very sweet. They've had their rough spots, too, but they really are a wonderful couple together.

If you add in the fact that they adopted all three of their kids because they wanted to help them, well yeah, it is so movie stuff. Thank you. :-D
