Another reason

She was the love of my life. She wanted to marry me, but no way Jose. I had just gotten divorced and was moving into my wild oats phase. We had two July 4th parties together and then we broke up. Ka-pow.

Five years later on July 4th, she sent me a letter. Before it arrived, I called her out of the blue. She wasn’t home. I called her father. He said she lived with another man in Wisconsin. He gave me her new number. I call her there. I asked her to marry me. She said maybe.

By August she said yes. We had a December wedding. That was 18 years ago. Turns out I was the love of her life, too.

It’s good to have a back up reason to celebrate the 4th.

I'll celebrate in your honor tomorrow.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Great story.

I too had a two year hiatus before my wife and i found each other again.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Hello Liz/Anglico


Quiet inspiration that you are. Missing you somes. :)

Your wife, little I've read/seen of her, sounds like the kind of woman who in another life I'd love to live as. One I'm doing being too far opposite pointedly.

Someday, sometime I'd love to acquaint myself with your lot.


I'm so glad you tracked me down! I've been a total slacker with my old friends, though I have been keeping track of you and the wonderful new person you've brought into this world. Much love, sweetie pie. Much love.
