There ain't nothing that breaks up homes, country, and nations like somebody publishing their memoirs.
The most memorable thing that happened that summer was meeting my future husband! At the time, I was dating another guy who was a friend of his so we were often thrown together in the group. One of my girl friends had a big crush on Dick (future husband ) so every night when I would get back to the dorm, I would have to call her and report on what he was doing! He was dating a girl from Stephens College, an elite girl's school also in Columbia.
By now future husband is not in the picture; I am not dating his friend and my girl friend has also moved on to greener pastures. Football is still taking front and center in fall activities...Mizzou had been to the Orange Bowl the two previous years and was doing pretty well this year too. (I went to the Orange Bowl with some friends in 1960 and wrote about it in a memory Monday). I am now dating a guy who worked at the Italian Village, a favorite hangout ...Italian food and cold beer.
