High Noon: Working Out

Dale and Eva Eastburg embrace at their home in Mead on June 28. The Eastburgs celebrated their 70th anniversary in May. He’s 90, she’s 88 and they enjoy going to the gym three days a week.

Dale Eastburg has never forgotten the first time he saw his future wife, Eva. Neither has she.

“I was in the front yard and Dale drove by on his motorcycle and almost crashed, because he was gawking at me,” Eva said.

“I almost hit a pole!” Dale confirmed.

It was 1939 and Dale, a senior at Rogers High School, asked one of the boys in the neighborhood to introduce him to the dark-haired beauty with the stunning smile.

Soon they became inseparable. Eva attended North Central High School, but not for long. Dale grinned. “I talked her into transferring to Rogers.” Cindy Hval, SR Full story.

An amazing couple. Married 70 years, they still go on dates every Friday and workout 3 times a week. How often do you exercise?
