My husband and friend worked construction on the Seattle’s Worlds Fair. Both were ironworkers, my husband on the Opera House, his friend on the Space Needle.
The night before the opening, we two couples were down at the site. (Tex’s Tavern was across the street back then). Well, our friend happened to have the key to the construction elevator and said, “Do we want to ride to the top of the Space Needle?”
Of course we did! Wow, what a ride — and I was terrified of heights!
We came down safely, and will be married 61 years on Oct. 21.
