The Joe Cocker Concert
Where we left off from last week…..
We went to the concert and neither of us liked it very much. Turns out “Handy’s” next-door neighbor was a beer salesman and had access to concert tickets. I guess no one wanted the tickets so he gave them to Keith 🙂
We left the concert early and went back to his house. We talked until 1 or 2 in the morning and then he took me home.
So Much in Common
It was one of those conversations where you find out all about the other person.
We both were raised by parents who had been together since they were young. Our Lutheran upbringings were another similarity. There were a lot of things about our lives that aligned.
Such a Good Guy
Keith is such a good guy and he was doing everything he could to be the one for me. I on the other hand was doing everything in my power to mess things up.
Was my history with men going to repeat itself? Was I going to let the good one get away?
What was my problem? Was it because I thought I didn’t deserve a nice guy?
It took a little bit of time but I did some real soul searching and some therapy! I finally decided I deserved to have someone treat me right and I chose the nice guy!
Kenny and I moved into his house in February and we were married in July 1993. One year after we met. By October of that same year, I was pregnant with Annie. That sweet baby is now getting ready to have a baby of her own.
And They Lived Happily Ever After
We’ve been married now for 30 years and as you know we are still in the little bachelor pad on the river.
Peace & Love,
P. S. Even good guys become grumpy old men! LOL
