Around 1967, Maggie and I went antique shopping, and I found two epees (a type of fencing sword) that I just loved. They must have been expensive because I didn’t buy them.
Maggie told me if I came back from Viet Nam and wasn’t wounded, she’d have them for me. When I got back from Viet Nam, I asked her “Did you get the swords?” She did.
She told me later she had to beat feet back to the antique store to see if they were still there!
