My mother and father had what may be a unique courtship.

Uncle Ike knew grandfather Philip Mozorosky in Canada. When Dad turned twenty one, Ike suggested his father take him to Portland to meet his old buddy's youngest daughter, Esther.

A blind date was arranged. The two went to see "The Jazz Singer". Filmed as a silent movie it was billed as the first "talkie". During the course of the movie Al Jolson could be heard singing and ended propheticly with he trademark " You ain't heard nothing yet!"

As they approached mother's front door she was startled to hear her date of the evening say I want to marry you. He would not leave that night until he had her promise of marriage.
