    During WW2, servicemen going to Europe stopped over at Gander Newfoundland because that was the closet to Europe to refuel before crossing the Atlantic...Dad was an airplane mechanic in England....After his service it was the same route back...Mom worked in the kitchen serving meals to GI's {she was Canadian}, they met, fell in love and he brought her back to NY

    Now yours.....

    They were set up. My mother's older sister lived in the same Bronx apartment building as my father's cousin and they started chatting one day about setting the young 'uns up...

    The less I know about my parents' romantic life, the better.

    I think they may have met in high school, not positive but I did inherit the letters my dad wrote to my mom in ww2 before they got married. They were pretty funny, I wish I could have talked to my dad about some of the things he wrote.

    Sadly my parents died a long time ago. One of the things that cracked me up was when my dad got drunk and then got into a fight! Can't even imagine that!

    My parents worked at the same place. My mom gave him her doe eyed demure flower look as he read the paper every morning cuz they took the same bus. She said he never looked up at her so she thought he never noticed her. One day he asked her to a Valentines dance. He asked her to marry him two weeks later and boom then came six kids..As a PS He dumped a woman for my mom and the woman married his younger brother. She never let my mother forget it..:giggle:

    I have no idea.

    My parents never spoke of anything which preceded my arrival. My mother's parents died before I was born, and I don't know their names.

    I don't know how they met, or a single detail of what took place before I was old enough to remember.

    You guys know that I have shitty parents. I'm not sure why they kept everything a secret.

    It's so weird that I can't tell you the names of my grandparents (on my mom's side). I have never heard the names.

    Complete radio silence. Nothing.

    You've got me thinking. I don't know what my grandfather did for a living, or even how he died. I know my grandmother had a stroke because my mother considered that a terrible way to leave her (my mother) stranded.
