'It was long ago and it was far away...
I literally spent years pursuing that pretty blond Dutch girl who moved in across the street when I was in the second grade. By age 13, she had learned English quite well - and was gorgeous.Unfortunately, we both had attended the same Catholic parochial school - and she claimed that she wanted to be a nun. She went to a Catholic girls' high school, and I went to a Catholic high school of 3,300 boys.Billy Joel's song was 10-15 years too late to 'help out' in my life - and I needed all the help I could get!However, persistence does pays off.I talked her out of becoming a nun.We celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary this year, with our five adult children, and a month-old grandson.
