Love isn’t blind after eighty! I enjoyed this story which appeared in Chris Smith’s column in the Santa Rosa (California) Press Democrat. I’ve reprinted it with his permission:
MAKING EYES: It began with small talk between two widowed strangers earlier this spring in the optical department at Kaiser. Dewey Logan, 83, and Sylvia Wyatt, 85, struck up a conversation while sitting side by side and waiting for their new specs. Then Dewey summoned the nerve to ask Sylvia for her phone number. Today they’re back home in Santa Rosa after a honeymoon in Reno.

People ask me all the time how to “meet someone.” I always tell them, “Do what you love doing on your own, and you’ll meet people who love the same activities.” I met my wonderful Robert at my own line dancing class!
Increasingly, though, I hear stories like the one above, or like the woman who wrote in about meeting her soulmate while waiting to have her blood pressure taken. You never know where you might encounter that person who will put a spring in your step and a zing in your heart!
Do you have an unusual story about how you met your special someone? Please comment!
