Way back in Redwood City, CA, area, I was down from Tacoma, WA, with my former husband who had been born and raised in that direction, and about 4 months after we were married he suddenly took me down. I was 23 to 28 years old down there.
I had a friend, through church in Redwood City, Denise, who, for about several months, was babysitting my daughter and son
|Her sons and my kids and their dad and me.|
I've lived in Omaha most of the time for 42 years. I've been in Oklahoma for a couple years, when my former husband had gone down there in '82 to be a roof fixer and he was wonderful at that. Well, we ended up divorced in Oklahoma in Sept., '84, and I was back up in Omaha with my kids, in early September, able to be with lots of friends in that town, and special schools for my kids that they've loved being there. Suddenly, and surprisingly, I had been married in September, '85. Now it's been 30 years... in September it will be our 31st anniversary ... and he's been a wonderful person for me and my kids. My kids and grandkids LOVE him!!
OK! This is the amazing situation. I've always thought about Denise and wondered how to get together. I was not back living in those western states. I've driven out or been flown out to see my sisters and friends for about 38 years.

She was here for a week and went back on Tuesday the 19th. We put her at the airport and gave her lots of hugs!!
Anyhow, it was a blessing to have her here. She's about a year younger than me. I'm 71 and she's 70.
Now I just wanted to tell how wonderful it has been.
