Days of Innocence

I think Christmas time always opens the flood gates of memories for us all and I am no exception. When I think back to all my christmas's past,the memories are never about the presents I received. Sure,there were a couple I cherish as my childhood favorites but for the most part the best memories are of my parents and my children and friends and family and things money can not buy. Oh the thrill of waiting on santa,does anything ever compare to it? If there is one thing that has the magic of that,it would have to be your first young love. And to have this first love happen at Christmas time is just special. In my day dating meant being courted. It was magical(like Christmas)and even a little kiss at the end of the evening meant more than most romantic things since. But,those were the days of innocence. This is a story about a boy and girl from those times........................

How Jim Smith lost his First Young Love

Jim Smith wished to buy a present for his first sweetheart, and after careful consideration, he decided on a pair of gloves.

Accompanied by his sweetheart's sister, he went to a department store and bought a pair of white gloves. The sister purchased a pair of panties for herself. During the wrapping, the items got mixed up and the sweetheart got the panties.

Without checking the contents, Jim sealed his package and sent it to his sweetheart with the following note:

Dearest Darling,

This is a little gift to show you I have not forgotten you this Christmas. I chose these because I noticed that you are not in the habit of wearing any when we go out in the evening. If it had not been for your younger sister, I would have chosen the long ones with the buttons, but she wears the short ones that are easy to remove. These are a delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me a pair that she had worn for three weeks and they were hardly soiled. I had the sales girl try them on and she really looked smart. I wish I could put them on you the first time. No doubt, other men's hands will come in contact with them before I have the chance to see you again. When you take them off blow in them before putting them away as they will naturally be a little damp from wearing. Be sure to keep them on when you clean them or they might shrink. I hopeyou like them and will wear them for me next Friday night.

All My Love,

P.S. Just think how many times I will kiss them during the coming year. Also, the sales girl showed me how they look when worn in the latest style: folded down with the fur showing
