The Big Country Is A Great Place For First Dates
The subject was suggested that we (the on air deejays) think of places as to where we would go if we were on a first date. OK, it’s been a long, long time ago since I was on a date. In fact I think that the last time I was on a date “Atari” was the hot game system and I had just learned how to take my “Sony Disc-man” and plugged it into my cassette deck and placed it on a folded towel to keep it from skipping. Anyway here goes.
Place 1) I recommend we go to my place since I have an awesome sound quadraphonic sound system with that new “Dolby Surround Sound” VCR. I can cook an awesome meal & we can later watch a really cool chick flick while enjoying a bottle of “Strawberry Hill”. After the movie we can listen to some of my favorite tunes. I really am an awesome cook, I prepare gourmet meals for my family & friends all the time. And that my friends is entertainment within itself!
Place 2) Dinner drinks & live entertainment at Copper Creek. This is a great ice breaker because it reminds me of so many far-away top end resorts/cruises, where quality and service are synonymous. Not to mention the company ain’t bad either…(the later was a TIC plug for me).
Place 3) The State Park nature trails, that is if she’s up to some healthy hiking and a picnic under the tall oaks. I’ll have to put the wine in a couple of Hi-C fruit punch bottles, cause the state don’t allow booze on the grounds…I think I just threw myself under the bus.
Place 4) Lets make it a golf date. We in Abilene have a great choice of AWESOME! golf courses. There’s the obvious Maxwell Municipal Golf course, Diamond Back, Fairway Oak Country Club, Abilene Country Club, Willow Creek and there is also Merkel & Clyde they too have great courses.
Place 5) For a first date and my favorite choice was hanging out with her grandparents, mom & dad. There was a picnic at the park out by the zoo. This allows you the ability to come and go if you feel a bit surrounded. The Abilene Parks & Recreation department does a fantastic job at keeping our parks looking good and the ants down, which I can’t even say that about my own back yard.
So there you are from my feeble mind comes the “Five First Dates” ideas & locations. To be completely frank here, this was a lot harder to write about than I originally thought…because come to think of it most of what we do for “entertainment” in Abilene is “Dining Out”. We really do need a water park…or a Hooters…LOL. Thank God above I am no longer in the dating game!
