Mr. Lucky

16 years ago Dave and I were engaged.

We had less than a month before our big day and we were very ANXIOUS!!

We had purchased a mobile home in Provo to live in while we were at school at the Y.

Dave lived there until we got married....without me.

I lived with my parents in West Jordan (40 minutes away).

We both worked to save money and wrote lots of love letters.

Memorial Day Weekend I drove to Provo and we had some friends over to watch a movie and eat dinner with us.

Dave and I are perfectly matched - we love all the same things - including:

old movies
Cary Grant
Frank Sinatra
ice cream
creamed corn
and on and on and on........

We watched a delightful little movie that weekend with Cary Grant - Mr. Lucky
We ate chicken and creamed corn, and even had ice cream while we watched the movie.

Ever since then we have our little pet names from the movie--

Dave is my heap-o-coke (bloke)

and he always calls me his briny marlin (darlin')

Our kids have asked many times what the names mean....

Last night we all snuggled up in our theater room (with ice cream) to watch Mr. Lucky

They laughed at all the right parts and loved it too!

We all decided old movies are the best!

good things:
Cary Grant
