Online Dating, Love at First Sight and Jean-Luc Ponty

I had met this wonderful woman online, and instead of meeting at a coffee house, to get acquainted, we agreed to go to a concert by Jean-Luc Ponty, a world-renowned electric violinist. He was appearing at the Paramount Theater, at Madison Square Garden, in New York City. We agreed to go dutch. We exchanged photographs, so we knew what the other looked like when we met. We hopped onto the train, into the city, and got along splendidly for the entire evening, enjoying the performance of Jean-Luc Ponty, and his electric violin. After the concert, we grabbed a taxicab to Chinatown, and have a wonderful Chinese food dinner, laughing, having good conversation, and sharing each other’s dish. That was 23 years ago, and to this day we are still happily married. If it wasn’t for Jean-Luc Ponty, I would not be the happy man that I am today.
