With Valentine’s Day on Thursday, editors have been asking readers, “How did you meet your spouse?”

Auggie Jones’ reply: “Short answer — She stole 75 cents from me, so I asked her out in order to get my money back or at least make it worth my loss.”

For the long answer to how Auggie and Sue Jones met, see Editor David Stevens’ Web log:

Falling, With Style

• Frank Dalton’s reply: “I met my wife Lois at A&M Farm and Ranch, where she worked in the clothing department and also ran the cash register.

“I had just moved back to Clovis from Houston and frequented A&M for supplies for some of my dad’s projects. 

“Since both of us were recently divorced, neither was interested in starting a relationship, so we became best friends instead. We married 15 months later, and have three great boys.”

• Raymond Atchley’s reply: “I unknowingly had seen Esther on the peripheral of my life since 1977 for sure and maybe earlier.

“Her family and my ex-wife’s family had been fairly close and she also worked at Clovis Memorial Hospital with the wife of my good friend and fellow police officer the late Dan Shultz.

“I really became enthralled with her while in the process of trying to play matchmaker and find her someone who would make her a great husband. Bless her heart, I concluded I was the best around.”

• Doug McGregor’s reply: “Dragging Main Street in the ’70s.”

• Gerald Majewski’s reply: “I met my wife while working in the post office in Milwaukee, Wis. She was coming around with cookies. … She was doing this because another girl was wanting to find out more information about me as I was just reinstated while returning from my first hitch in the Air Force.”
