My parents got married on June 20th, 1936. I always think about them on that day every year.

@just4him I feel them around me quite a bit. So they are not really lost at all. And they made me, so I also have them inside of me.

@CRK109 That's nice. I didn't have a good relationship with my parents so I don't 'feel' them around me, nor do I want to. I wish things had been different between us and I had a good relationship with my parents, but it was what it was.

I wonder if dates will mean much after a long time. I would not put together Queen Victoria┬┤s getting crowned with a picture such as Jaws.

@salonga I'm not so much all for feel good movies as I am not for the horror thriller genre. I don't like being scared when I watch a movie.

Oh, I love you! You remembered! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are the best! Jaws was also scary. Only being 39 years old makes it so difficult to remember the rest..

I have never seen Jaws and I don't want to. I have a best friend who loves sharks and would love to swim with them even though she doesn't like water.

She was young, but she was next in line, so age didn't matter.
