Good sports

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - VALENTINE'S DAY -

Dave came to fix the door on the boat. He walked in wear­ing over­alls with no shirt on un­der­neath and I thought he had nice shoul­ders and thought ‘‘Yep, that’ll do!’’ We were to­gether for a while and one day I men­tioned that if he were to ask me a cer­tain ques­tion, I would prob­a­bly say yes. Then, he asked me to marry him, late one night. Our mar­riage works well, we both love sport and hav­ing a good laugh. The jokes and laugh­ter are im­por­tant. I also think be­ing able to for­give and for­get and not bring up past griev­ances is im­por­tant for a mar­riage. We also take hol­i­days to­gether, where we can take off the many caps we wear such as par­ents and bosses and just be us. Just be Dave and Carol. The same as we were when we first met.
