married in 1973

Memory From:
Sandy Kern,USA, Married to My Husband 1970's

We got married in 1973. He was in the army and looked so good in his uniform. I would take him to work at 5:00 am and go park at a closed gas station to wait in line to put gas in our car. I would bring a pillow, blanket and alarm clock to wake me up at 8:oo am when the station opened. I did this twice a week for months. By the time our first child was born the shortages were waning but we still worried about having enough gas to get to the hospital, so we carried a five gallon gas can in our trunk. The gas station attendants only let us put gas in a container because I was pregnant.
We're still married and he's still handsome.
