When I was 25, I decided I was tired of being single. I decided to marry the next girl I started dating. Charlie had a steady girl in Las Vegas, and I traveled to Vegas with him and went on a date with a friend of Charlie's girl friend. Her name was Kara. We went to the UNLV-Utah basketball game. UNLV was very good back then with Jarry Tarkenian coaching. Any way, that was around New Year's. We also went to the Las Vegas region New Years Eve dance. It was a really big deal, at a mall in Las Vegas with several different bands.
Kara was a student at BYU, and I at the time was at the University of Utah. I proposed to her close to Jordan River Temple. She said she would have to think about it and then in the end said no. That was a blessing.
