The time I met the "star" in my life was the day I met June. It was one warm evening nearly 58 years ago in September 1950. I will cherish and remember that day forever. I and another Air Force buddy decided we'd go the Long Beach Pike one evening to enjoy the sites and the rides. As we were walking the rides we came to the hammer where June and her friend Pat were watching men trying to ring the bell. My buddy "Lucky" said I'm going to show them that he can do it. While he was making his attempts the two girls and I started talking with each other. It was a meeting that I had always dreamed might happen. I met the sweetest and liveliest person imaginable. as the evening wore on we walked and talked and eventually convince the girls to go on the ride called "the whip." During the ride June clung on and held her tight in my arms. Our hands met and as we held each other our eyes met. This set a wonderful felling throughout my body and I knew right then and there that I had met the one and only "star" of my life.
