Don was sitting in the waiting room of the quick oil change places, when “a very striking woman” came in and sat down next to him. When he tried to strike up casual conversation, she gave him short, curt responses. He gave up and went back to the book he was reading. Later, when he got ready to leave, he heard her arguing with an attendant about the work done on her car, and he walked over to be her rescue. After he helped her get what she had paid for, she thanked him by giving him her card and asking him to call her for lunch. They married a month later in Bermuda.

Carol was sitting at a light, when a very handsome guy drove up and started flirting with her and asking her to pull over. Of course, with times being the way they are, she refused, but was very flattered. At the sixth light, he asked her to meet him at a nearby restaurant and she did. She says, “he looked so good and had so much personality that I went against my caution button and adhered to my womanly instinct. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.” They married three months later in Vegas.
