OP­PO­SITES AT­TRACT

Reminisce - - Our Lives -

Lora, at right here in 1961, was al­ways pop­u­lar with ev­ery­one. She even dated Sylvester Stallone at one point. I was shy. In fact, be­fore he knew my name, my fu­ture hus­band used to re­fer to me as “the girl with Lora.” She led us into mis­chief oc­ca­sion­ally—my par­ents were stricter than her wid­owed, work­ing mother—but we were too naive to be truly bad. We both loved home eco­nom­ics and made all of our dance dresses. We were sep­a­rated dur­ing our col­lege years when she moved to Colorado, but later we had wed­ding and baby show­ers for each other. I wish there were fewer than 1,000 miles be­tween us to­day, but I guess that’s life.
