10 years ago. John and I were at the State Fair. We were at a booth that sold globes you filled with water and put flower arrangements in. I bought 2. My memory is still totally clear. The lady looked at us and said "Princess Diana is dead". I was shocked. I had fallen into the Princess Diana dream when they got married, I had (and still do) the collector coin of the two of them, I stayed up late and watched the wedding and all the festivities on the TV.
We were just kinda shocked. We wandered a while longer at the Fair then went home. I don't remember if it was my house or his, but most likely his as he was just a mile from the fair grounds. We were still fresh to the relationship and I know we werent living together yet. So we just sat and watched all the craziness on TV.
