On an airplane, one of those old DC-3s (this was back in 1959). My dad was 27 and my mom was 20 and very attractive. She had just won her airline's "Miss Aviation" award, essentially a beauty pageant, complete with bathing suit picture on the cover of her city's Sunday Times magazine in the newspaper. At that age my dad was established and ready to settle down.

They were on the same flight and my mom was working. My dad had his eyes set on her. The flight got diverted because of a storm, and between the flight, ensuing delays, and the next leg my dad got her contact info. He began dating after he got passed her tough Russian father and, as they say, the rest is history.

I have some pictures of my mom around here somewhere. She was quite attractive.
