I went on a blind date, and as they say the rest is history.
Way back when we bought our first home in Miami, we were not married. The sellers didn't really want to sell to an unmarried couple, so we ended up saying we were engaged to be married on February 7th (we were buying the house in May) which was actually the day we first met on a blind date. From that point on, we've celebrated that as our anniversary. It took a full 5 years before we actually did get married.
In Miami, it's difficult to get in for dinner on Valentines day like next week, so we just celebrate both our anniversary and Valentines Day on the 7th - that way we can have a no stress enjoyable dinner.
It's been awhile since we've had the Buick out. By awhile, I mean at least 10 years. We trailered it up to Central Florida about 4 years ago, and there it sat in the garage. Last weekend after a little bit of work to get it running, we took it out to the Saturday night cruise-in in downtown Sanford. The tires were squared but she got us there and back without issue.
Tonight we'll go out somewhere to celebrate. Don't know where yet, but looking forward to it.
This is what we refer to as the "first date" car, and since the anniversary of our first date is February 7th, we wanted to take it out. It is pretty much original. The plating is original, and the paint was probably re-done sometime in the 60's. That being said, it needs to be freshened up - but it did get a lot of people looking at it and asking questions.
It was a great night … It was great to get the Buick back on the road - it is one of my favorites.
