I journey back in time 1975-1976
We met on the weekend after Valentine Day. I remember thinking another VD and no boyfriend. I was living in a little trailer behind Fotos Meat Market with several other girls, who came and went. Nancy was an LPN at BARH on midnight shift. I was a ward clerk. Anyways this goofy boy called the trailer all day, asking for me, telling Nancy he wanted to take me to a party. She finally told him if he would stop calling, I would go out with him. So when I got home, there he sat, and there sat Nancy, mad as a wet hen so I went to the party with Bobby Holiday. The party turned out to be at Randall's apartment. Randy was with this beautiful girl named Jenny but I didn't know any of this. Bobby went to get some beer from the frig. I sat down on the couch. Jenny was perched on the arm of the chair and out of the kitchen emerged the most handsome man I had ever seen. He had long blonde hair, suntanned skin, even in Feb., tight blue jeans and a blue tight tshirt and blue suede boots. I had on a thin soft green sweater and tight jeans and clogs. He sat down beside me. He started talking, asking me where I was from. He said:"Where you been all my life?" I looked into his eyes and said Clear Creek. He thought that was so funny. Then he touched my hair and I said: I guess I was waiting for you to show up." We stood up and touched hands, electricity. He pulled me close to him, to see how much taller he was than me. 5 foot 2 and 6 ft. 4. Everyone in the room kept trying to get my attention or talk to Randy. They said he had never acted like that before. We sat and talked all night. I don't even know what happened to our dates or anyone else in the room. We fell in love the moment our eyes met. Of course, I finally had to go home. He walked me to the porch. Then he walked me to the car and started it up for me and laughed at my pinto. I never did find my date but at least I had my pinto.The next day, I could not find my purse. I remembered leaving it at Randy's the night before. I went back to his apartment. I knocked on the door. He opened the door and I walked in. I think we have been together ever since. We were married 4 months later on the 4th of July, 1976. I know some people go their entire life searching for love like we had. We had a passionate marriage right up to the end. Oh of course we had problems but we always, always loved each other. Together Forever.
