Good evening and how are we all?
I’m a most happy camper. VERY happy camper. Ecstatic Happy Camper! It’s been an amazing weekend. I couldn’t have fantasized better! Honest! I have found my Gary Fuller.
He met me about half a mile down the street. There is a community center with a walking path around a large pond. No one was there and we had the place to ourselves for the 2 hours we were there. We walked a lot, talked a lot and yeah, my lipstick was GONE by the time we left.
He and my son got a long GREAT! He was really impressed with Spawn and Spawn – you’re not going to believe this – gave him his blessing to court me. We went to a festival – all three of us – Saturday afternoon. It was REALLY hot and we were both zapped by the end of it – early evening. So rather than go to a movie and dinner, we opted to stay in, let Spawn cook for us and watch a movie on my laptop. NO movie was watched, we ended up talking about many things, including things i n the past that shaped us into the people we are today. 37 years relived in a few hours.
He is not a sci fi fanatic, Tolkien or Harry Potter fan. Just didn’t get into them. We are not of the same political affiliation, but we conversed sanely and we agree on many things. On others we have agreed to disagree.
We had breakfast this morning before he left. We are planning on getting together again early June. – 31 days. His Memorial Day is booked with his daughter (who will most likely be named to a conference all-star team and will be playing tournaments that weekend) and I have a doctor’s appointment of the 1st. We are going to Daytona Beach for a one night trip – Daytona has great significance for us. And then in a week or two after that, he and I will head to Charleston, do the antebellum tours and such. There will also be several lighthouse excursions that Spawn will be invited to over the summer.
He is a Southern Gentleman. I’m having to get used to have the door opened for me, among other things. He says I’ve not been treated like a princess in too long, so I need to get used to this. I so very much will!
Spawn informed me he liked This One much better than anyone else I have brought home. Ever.
At some point, we’ll have to deal with the long distance aspect of this relationship. We are aware of that and we have agreed to address it in chunks. He is a better planner than I am. He has dealt with schooling and retirements for several of his family members and has done rather well for all. He doesn’t think I should work as late as I think I’m going to have to work for my 20 years. We’ll see.
Needless to say, I will start counting days tomorrow. I miss him already and he’s not even home yet.
Soooo…. now it’s time for beefcake!
Are you ready? I am ready!
Had this man pulled me over and given me a ticket, I wouldn’t be so upset!
Some men should be illegal. This one is one.
Had the Scots dressed like this for real, they would have lost NO fights and NO wars.
Another illegal man.
This man slays me.
Y’all have a great week. I’ll be smiling for a long, long time!
