Chuck Hinman: IJMA 103 : Honeymoon Memories
It's Just Me Again No. 103 by Chuck Hinman. Honeymoon Memories
The next earlier Chuck Hinman column Chuck Hinman No. 162-B, Good night, John-boy
By Chuck Hinman
Last night sleepless hours produced this gem under the title of "honeymoon memories." The memory is 55 years old -- a mere "baby" as memories of an 85 year old geezer go.
Connie and I were married on the Memorial Day weekend of 1952. Because I had only been working at Phillips Petroleum Company less than a year, I was not vested with any vacation time.
We selected Ginger Blue Resort north of Noel, Missouri, as the site of our honeymoon. Our room overlooked the scenic Elk River.
Last night in my sleepless hours, I relived some of the romantic hours of our honeymoon....
It seems that every couple during their courting days adopts a popular song of the day as "their" song. Ours was the very popular song of the day - "Tenderly" recorded by Harry James.
Last night's memories dwelled on the numerous times we played "Tenderly" on the nickelodeon and were the only couple dancing on the dance floor, hopelessly in love.
One of the blessings of old age is that even though my vision is clouded by macular degeneration -- my memory vision is not affected. It is as clear as a bell.
Thanks, my precious Connie for flooding my life with pleasant memories and sweet dreams.
-Chuck Hinman, July 22, 2007
