Except for my junior prom I was not allowed to date until I was 18. I went to the prom with a boy named Jimmy Grimes who attended Malden Catholic High School. After the prom we went to dinner at Valle's Steak House.
What I consider to be my real first date was in June 1966 with a man Named Joe Freitas from Charlestown Mass. He was in the Navy and 22 at the time, I was 18. He took me in to Boston to see The Sound Of Music.
