Pier Pressure

My dream came true on the end of the UW Union pier [Traditions, Summer 2012]. During the 1956 summer school session, my friend and I took a moonlight walk on the pier. There I proposed to her, telling her I’d throw her in the water if she said no. She could not swim, so she immediately answered yes. After summer school, we eloped and have just celebrated our fifty-sixth anniversary. Dreams do come true.
