“It turned out that Larry was not at all dangerous, but Murray, my date, was very much so.”
Atlantic Beach on Long Island was a wonderful meeting place for young people. One day in August, I was splashing in the surf and when I ran out of the water, a very good-looking guy with blond curly hair approached me and said “ You’re cute, I’d like to fix you up with my friend Larry” and pointed to him. Larry was very handsome with a dark and dangerous look and was definitely not my type. I replied “I’d rather go out with you” We did go out that night together with Larry and another girl.
It turned out that Larry was not at all dangerous, but Murray, my date, was very much so. It is 64 years since that day. Murray and I have been married for 62 years and he is still as nervy and handsome as he was on that August day in 1952!
