In this episode, we had fun imagining the early love life of Hi and Lois, back when they first started dating.

I was a teenager in the 1960s, before cell phones, dating apps and social media.  The guy would usually call his prospective partner on the phone and ask her out.  I always got nervous not knowing what the answer would be.  What to wear was always a challenge for the girls. Blue jeans and a sweater?  A dress with fancy shoes?  My father had an antique MG sports car that I never got to drive.  Instead I took the family station wagon.
