Delightful pictures of Paul Newman and Joan Woodward

On this Valentine Day: February 14, 2012

   Welcome! in case you have stumbled into my blog, you are reading BEYOND THE BLUE DOMES.  I am a "Baby-Boomer" born and raised in Iran and my topics range from my memories growing up in Iran to homeless community in Santa Monica and beyond.  My theme is social realities and preserving the history. I'd like to connect with people around the world that share the same passion. 

A Romantic story about Paul Newman:

Only women of a certain era will fully appreciate this true story.
(if you don't understand this, tell your mother, she'll get it)

A Michigan woman and her family were vacationing in a small new England town where Paul Newman and his family often visited. 

One Sunday morning, the woman got up early to take a long walk. After a brisk five-mile hike, she decided to treat herself to a double-dip chocolate ice cream cone.

She hopped in the car, drove to the center of the village and went straight to the combination bakery/ice cream parlor. 

There was only one other patron in the store.
Paul Newman, sitting at the counter having a doughnut and coffee.

The woman's heart skipped a beat as her eyes made contact with those famous baby-blue eyes. 

The actor nodded graciously and the star struck woman smiled demurely.

Pull yourself together! She chides herself. You're a happily married woman with three children, you're forty-five years old, not a teenager! 

The clerk filled her order and she took the double-dip chocolate ice cream cone in one hand and her change in the other. Then she went out the door, avoiding even a glance in Paul Newman's direction.

When she reached her car, she realized that she had a handful of change but her other hand was empty. 

Where's my ice cream cone? Did I leave it in the store? Back into the shop she went, expecting to see the cone still in the clerk's hand or in a holder on the counter or something. No ice cream cone was in sight. 

With that, she happened to look over at Paul Newman.

His face broke into his familiar warm friendly grin and he said to the woman,

'You put it in your purse.'

Here is a tribute to the long-lasting marriage of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, one of the most famous marriages in Hollywood. They stayed Happily married for 50 years, a very rare phenomenon. When I was young in Iran, I was fascinated with their LOVE affair. Now that I know more about marriage, I'm more fascinated about their relationship.

Paul Newman said: "People stay married because they want to, not because the doors are locked"
