"Romance" Boardwalk Memories

Amazing Life "Ride", 1970

I met Art, Mike and Ed as I was waiting to ride the Giant Dipper. Since I was standing in front of Art, we spoke to each other first. When our conversation began to lag, he was quiet for a moment, looked at me and then past Mike. All of a sudden, he reached out, grabbed Ed by the shirt sleeve and yanked him past Mike toward me saying "Ed this is June – June this is Ed. You two talk." This photo was taken the day we met. The rest is (as they say) “history.” From the first moment we met, we were soul mates and most important have become each other's best friend. We were engaged on Aug 8th and married December 5th (1970). When we tell the story of how we met on the ramp of the Giant Dipper, we also say it has been an amazing ride. On June 20, 2015, at 1:30 p.m., we will take a ride on the roller coaster to celebrate the day we met; in December, we will celebrate our 45th Wedding Anniversary. Then in five years, God willing, on Saturday, June 20, 2020, we will celebrate our 50th anniversary with another visit and fantastic ride on the Giant Dipper.
