Music in My Ear

     The image I used today came from the Progressive Challenge at LeAnn's World 101.  The sentiment came from a memory that goes back 50 years!

     One of my first 'serious' boyfriends was drafted into the Army when he was 18 (3 weeks after signing up for the Selective Service as required by law and I thought it was the end of the world.)  The first time he was allowed to make a phone call when he was going through Basic Training, he called me - not his mom or anyone in the rest of his family, but me!!  lol  During that conversation he said to me, "Your voice is music in my ear."  Most telephone calls we had from that point on, he would repeat that phrase and it became a thing between the two of us.  As happens with puppy love, we drifted apart and moved on to meet and marry other people, each of us having families of our own.

     As soon as I saw this image, that phrase popped into my head and I thought about him even though we completely lost touch years ago.  Funny how memories stay with us even decades later.

     I'm using this one for a masculine birthday card.

I LOVE your card, but have to admit to loving your story too. Yes things can pop into your head like that. I always remember a boyfriend who bought me a box of Dairy Box chocolates every week. I got bored with the same thing so finished with him! I was 14 LOL. Everytime I see the chocolates in a shop I think of him, even 60 years later!

Your card is so adorable and how perfect for a teen! What a fun story and it's always funny how our minds work in that way and what things we remember at a much later time. Thanks for sharing! :)
