A funny thing happened
on my way to the 50th reunion… or all the world is a stage and I
keep falling off
Married my high school sweetheart, a brand new 20 year old second lieutenant
and moved to Harlingen Texas, then to Texas Tech (Lubbock Texas) with
one toddler – left Lubbock with 3 children, (one three weeks old),
for a tour at Hill APB Utah. Then it was Tampa for about 13 months while
hubby was in Vietnam, then to the Pentagon (living in Woodbridge VA.)
Became proficient in sledding down the hill and then picking the thorns
etc. from my fanny after the wipeouts.
After a stint in Albuquerque NM, we transferred to Southern California.
Did a little heartbreak, and lots of real estate sales because I discovered
poverty sucks and teenagers eat a lot! Took many wonderful trips including
Hong Kong and Europe thanks to generous sales awards from my company.
Was blessed with 2 brilliant and gorgeous grandchildren, (how unique).
Did a lot of single life, “interviews” they call it. Yuck!
One evening a silver-haired
interviewee with a sense of humor showed up at my door in a French Chef’s
outfit with an adorable French accent, a bottle of good wine and the fixings
for Duck l’orange…
And he could dance as well. What more could a girl want? We have been
married 7 ½ years now.
We retired 6 months ago and moved to Northern California. Out latest grand
baby was born in this home just before we came here. Robert’s son
delivered his first child all the while getting instructions over the
cell phone from the midwife who was on the way… but too late for
the grand event.
We are taking further
dancing lessons, and flying to places of interest in our magic carpet
with my “French Chef” as Pilot.
