A Car and a Milkshake

Well I found out my mom is now reading my blog. Which I think is cool. So I thought I would write a blog about her. As I was thinking about what to write about, I thought I would write the story of how my mom and dad started going out.

They both went to the same church and grew up in the coal town of Shamokin, PA. Now I am a little fuzzy on the specifics, but something was going on that brought both my mom and my dad to downtown one day. My mom spotted my dad and his friends and heard they were going for ice cream (my dad lived on milkshakes back then). Once again I am fuzzy on the details but I believe at this point my dad invited her a long or mom asked to go along. Either way my mom is not one to miss a ride for ice cream.

And that was the beginning of their dating. Now a days we try to impress women with our cell phones, sound systems, designer clothes and fancy dinners. All my dad needed was a car and a milkshake.
