Page One - How It Got Started...

On July 28th 2020, I had a dinner engagement with this delightful lady who has been a friend for almost twenty years.  We kinda hit it off, especially after exchanging our cards and seeing that they were identical except for the name and address on them. An omen, me thinks so!

After a year of seeing each other every day, we decided to tie the knot and we elected to do it at the very same place were first met for dinner, Patty's Place in Seal Beach!

Who Caused This To Happen? Ms. Mongel Of Course

Jan called my and asked me to call Mary and go to dinner just to visit as we were both pretty lonely.  I said OK but did not expect the next year to be such a wild ride!

Jan was at the wedding of course providing last minute instructions to us "kids".
