We got married on a short weekend in York, South Carolina. A short weekend meant I got off duty at noon Saturday, drove 250 miles home. We were married in SC by Justice of the Peace Nunn around 7-7:30PM. Cake cutting back at Belmont, NC then off 75 miles for a one night honey moon at Lake Lure, NC. Back to Belmont where we separated and I headed back to the base (ONE HAPPY GUY!).
My mom & dad on left and Sherry's dad & mom in the center.
Back to Belmont on discharge. Looked for work for two months, got a job at the Charlotte Observer putting ‘This Week’ magazine inside the ‘funnies’. Tough job. I worked two weeks.
Later I did and moved Sherry and the boys back to Charlotte to wait until I got housing. I shipped out to GITMO. At least one person reading this will know what comes next, right Ora? I shipped unaccompanied; Sherry and two boys were to follow.
That was a good part of our life. That history lesson brings us up to about the half way mark of our lives until now. Only 10 -12 major moves in 12-13 years of marriage.
My girl is a trooper!
Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
