How did you meet your Spouse/Partner?

We met at WestConn in a music appreciation class. On our first date, he told me he was going to marry me and I told him he was crazy. It took him three years to convince me, but he ended up being right.

School Story:

I remember how exciting it was to move from what is now the municipal center into our new school. Now my daughter is a student at this same school which is newly remodeled and bears very little resemblance to the building we moved into in the Spring of 1970.

Famous or interesting people you've met?

One of the more interesting people I met was Jackie Onassis. It was at an auction of Arabian Stallions that was held at Mike Nichols estate. My father was a private detective hired by Jackie to be her personal guard. He asked me to accompany him on the job. Jackie came with Warren Beatty as her date, which was a surprise to many people. Also present at this shindig were Robert Wagner, Candace Bergen, Art Garfunkel and many others. I actually sat and talked to Jackie and she was pretty amazing. I had not thought about this for years until recently when I came upon a copy of the People magazine that covered the event.
Over the years, I have met many other famous people but Jackie was definitely the most interesting.
