64 FordI remember mine. It was spring of 1968, I was a farm kid not quite 17, she was my first girlfriend. We were sitting my 64 Ford Fairlane in the school parking lot, after a dance or something. It was my first kiss, but it wasn't hers. I don't remember a lot about it, but I was impressed. Actually I was thrilled.
Her real boyfriend was away in the service and she was going out with me just for something to do, I guess. When he came home on leave, off she went, and that was that. I was pretty mad but I took up with another girl about 4 days later so my pain didn't last too long. She left school and got married later. The last time I saw her, she was standing on her front porch early in the morning, waiting for her new husband to get home from work, and me and a couple of other characters were stumbling by in the aftermath of our graduation night.
I don't know what happened to her, but I still have her senior picture. "To a nice guy I wish I had," she wrote.
