My Girl

 Early interesting Cars:

 The car we dated and smooched in, 1948 Chevy Convertible. (Years 1955-1956)

For today:

I know our daily lives are of little interest to the world at large, but folks I remember a girl who took my heart. She was a cute, crinoline slip wearing girl usually with a pony tail.


She attended the last church my dad pastored. She was ‘older’ so I was not in my class. I was trying to date and finally did one of the younger girls in the church. A very sweet girl, and also very pretty (of course) LOL.


We broke up and she and Buddy became a ‘thing.’ I was sorta lost and a friend suggested I ask Sherry out.(Long story here) but I finally did. I always remembered seeing her entering the church and saw about 3-4 inches above her ankles in those long skirts and crinolines.  I just knew this girl would have beautiful legs.


Yep, in 1955 she was a cutie. A bubble blowing sweet heart. We were married in 1956. She has been my dream come true. And YES, she had and still does have BEAUTIFUL legs. This girl has ‘put-up’, and endured   a lot, and the Lord knows I appreciate it.


Now in our 80s she is still the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I am still trying to make up for the ‘Stupid’ things I have done. It can never be done, but I do want to try.


Sherry just asked me what I was doing. “I’m counting with my fingers!”

“I knew you were counting, I just did not know what?”


She went back to her computer, I did not tell her I was counting the years to make sure it had been 64. Well, in 4 days, it has been, but it doesn’t seem that long.


She looked so stinking good yesterday at the DMV I coulda eat her up.


I did get a kiss in the car when we left to go check our mail.


That reminds me I have to notify the USPS to forward our mail to Florida.


(At times I forget where we are. LOL (true))

  To clarify our status. WE have been Floridians for over 20 yrs methinks, just moved around a lot and each time addresses/registrations must be changed. Every county wants to get their share of taxes. We still have a home in NC where the cats are, and we will probably go back to see them in a month or so; then back here for the rest of the winter. We will travel a little now, but this is 'supposed' to be our winter home.

Happy Anniversary! Nog many can claim that many years together. I think you two were meant for each other and glad I've gotten to know you both. Even though Sherry doesn't blog I feel like I know her through you. I'm glad you let her know how much she means to you often. That makes a big difference.

I do believe Betty's right! Move over Romeo and Juliet ... there's a bigger and better Love Story still unfolding. :)

It has been a 64 year long long story and I am so happy for both of you.

Thanks for answering me about where you live. I have been so confused. I even asked Darla today! No kidding.

So you consider yourself Floridians with a home in SC. I would never have guessed that.

Thank you.

64 years with that lovely lady is a wonderful gift you've been given! I imagine she feels that she too has had the gift of a lifetime with you! You both are a wonderful example of how a marriage can is a great start but we know that it also takes trust, compromise, hard work, being there for the good and the bad, and enjoying the ride of everyday life! Enjoy Florida in your new home and say hi to the kitties when you go back to visit! Hugs from Jack and I in Ohio! (Happy Anniversary in a few days too!)

Your Anniversary falls on Bill's oldest sons birthday. 64 yrs of wedded bliss is a wonderful thing not many can claim. Many fun happenings on your special day, mostly all those kisses. I get such a kick out of the two of you. I love how you're not afraid to show your love. It's so charming. Your new home will be full of everything good.
;) love n' hugs from up north where we've been enjoying one another as we ride the trails through our woods. It's so pretty out there with colored leaves, lots of wildlife to see. God's been blessing us too, like yourselves. Have a warm weekend.
