All things BRUCE!
I want to thank everyone for sharing their memories of Therese, I had forgotten our eternal link - BRUCE! When I learned of of Therese's rightful adoration of the Boss, I quickly excused her being a devotee of Yusuf Islam (nee Cat Stevens). Besides, she was much younger then her musical taste hadn't yet developed. And I newer held the bowling experience against her, how was she to know that to ask me to go bowling was like asking a man with only one thumb to play pool?
I also had forgotten that pizza was our usual fare and our outings to the Chinese restaurant. I will always have a fond memories of our Friday nights outings to Old Town to the Confectionary Shop for a pastry and a cup of cappuccino. Now,a cup of coffee after 5 guarantees me a night of fitful sleep.
And while my memories of food are foremost in my mind (When isn't food foremost on my mind?)I have to give special attention to the always full Windt pantry. If you couldn't find anything to eat at the Windt's means you weren't looking. By our 3rd or 4th date I commented to Therese about the abundance of donuts and such and told her parents didn't have to indulge my sweet tooth. She scoffed and told me it wasn't my sweet tooth they were indulging but I was always welcome to partake in the bounty. Not wanting to be an ingrate, I always partook in the bounty.
The book remains open until August, I'll be sharing more memories later.
