I’m really beginning to like rainy days. On rainy days I can work on pictures at my computer without feeling guilty.
Betsy and I had our first date on March 29, 2001. It was a dinner date to discuss the Bible classes that I missed when my work took me out of town. (That topic never came up).
I thought the dinner date went well, but Betsy was ‘busy’ when I asked her out again. In spite of that rejection I wanted to see her again, so I took a picture of the spring flowers in bloom in Centennial Park, Nashville, (I worked near the park) and e-mailed it to her with an invitation to go there with me on Saturday morning. The tulips must have been irresistible because she said ‘yes’.
Centennial Park has beautiful gardens as well a unique feature — a full-sized replica of the Parthenon. The exterior was being refurbished while we were there, but the main hall with the statue of Athena and an art gallery in the lower level were both open. We enjoyed our visit to both levels of the Parthenon.
I didn’t have my camera on our first date, but I had it when we were at Centennial Park. The picture above is the very first picture I took of Betsy (I’ve taken a few more since then). If you would like to see more of our morning at Centennial Park click HERE.
