together. He He We were both 20 when we got married, I had barely been out of the state of WV.
He was in the army stationed at Fort Belvoir, Va. We were married 3 months before we could save
up enough money for down payments and rent to get an apartment. And the first week, we ate a cheese gift
set that his grandma sent us for Christmas. I was such a naive country girl when we got married, I remember
one time we were invited to a party.
Well it was a party like I had never attended before. There was drinking and other things I won't mention,
but you have to rem. that was the seventies man.
Well I looked at my husband and said that I didn't like that party , where in the world was the cake
and ice cream. He He Being in the army he had been exposed to the world more than I had.
Now look at us, we have 2 grown children and 3 beautiful grandbabies!! I have so much
to be thank for for. We went from a roach infested pink appliances apartment to a home of our own,
nothing fancy but our part of the American dream.
Well hubby sent me some flowers for our anniversary and we went to a little country inn for dinner, We had
a relaxing evening.
Would I marry Ronnie again, yes I would in a heartbeat, do I have any regrets. Well yes I do,
I used to love the Bee Gee's,( you young girls won't know who I am talking about). They came
to D.C. for a concert when my hubby was in the army. We didn't have money to go to the concert, but do
I ever regret not going to see them. I should have borrowed the money. He He
Since my Lilly girl had died several months ago, Ronnie's brother has given us his shelty, Bo, he is a new addition to our family.
So much to be thankful for. And I feel like I am a little wisher now to the world. He He
And Ronnie I hope we have another 32 years together.
