Recently, I said this to a couple - "How did y'all meet?"
Smiling, they told us that they first met at a bus stop while it was raining and they had shared an umbrella. This couple is from Armenia and they didn't know the song that instantly sprang to my mind. (I hope they will see it here now!) If you don't know the song, "Bus Stop" by the Hollies, which was a big hit in 1966, then I hope you will listen to it now!
The lead singer on that song was Allan Clarke and I just found the most wonderful interview with him! It has so much background information about the songs from the Hollies. If you are interested, you may click on his name that I have below and you can read it too.
I knew that Graham Nash (you know, from Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young?) was with the Hollies in the early days but what I did not know was that Graham Nash had been good friends with Allan Clarke since they were school kids, when they were only six years old! Oh goodness me, things like that just tickle me no end!
Richard was in England in December of last year and he took some photos from the pier in Eastbourne. Isn't this beautiful? Richard and I actually met for the first time when I visited London in May of 1981. I told him to meet me in the lobby of the hotel where my sister and I were staying. Why didn't I think of some romantic spot, like on the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral or beside the Thames near the Houses of Parliament? I am just not the romantic type, I guess! So, if you are married or have a romantic partner, how did you meet? Do tell!
