I saw a picture of it long ago, after she passed. It's packed with antiques, a little clutter. I love the Dakota. Every time I go to Central Park ( I  fast walk. I can't jog anymore. My left knee is out), I pass it. It's where John Lennon got shot by that crazy fellow.  The last time I heard it was a black man who headed the coop board and had moved in his mother. Could you buy me a two bedroom there? It's not much but it would do for now!

Yes, they stayed together despite the age difference between them. They also made  several movies together. I love great romances!

Ever wondered what the "people" would have thought if the age difference was reversed?

In those days she would have been looked up on as a pervert. Older woman, younger men was not accepted in those days. Women like me have always loved younger men. There's nothing the matter with it. People's minds are not screwed on correctly.  Nowadays, you see it a lot. An adult is an adult and compatibility is better than age!

Exactly! Some people are meant to be together, regardless. And I know what I'm talking about smile

Obviously: a man as old as can be can still have children with a younger woman in the age for that. The other way round, it won't work that well. But from the moment on both are grateful for being together, and both are clear about the consequences, some of the best and deepest relationships I know of can build up.
